Images from the 2017 IRONMAN World Championship Parade of Nations

While it may have (literally) rained on the parade, it certainly didn’t dampen the spirits on Tuesday evening in Kona, Hawaii, for the annual IRONMAN World Championship Parade of Nations. Besides, if you are going to have some rain, having it in the warm surroundings of Ali’i Drive is not a bad place to get a little wet. Besides, it really doesn’t take long to dry here.

Here are a few images from the event.
