Hawaiian Festival

On Saturday, July 11, 2009, I drove over to Newark/Fremont for a Hawaiian festival: 'O Ka'ahumanu Wahine Ali'i Ahahui 8th Annual Ho'olaule'a. It turned out to be an unremarkable, though relaxing (perhaps due to the Hawaiian music and dancing), small festival (18 booths) in a small, shaded park. It took less than ten minutes to see everything. Only two booths are worth mentioning: one sold plates painted with pretty Hawaiian scenes; the other sold wine bottles that they'd melted down until they are almost flat, and used them as serving plates for cheese, crackers, nuts, etc. A neat idea.

Aside from the shaved ice and spam musubi, there was only one food booth (from which I bought lunch).

Regardless of the size, the setting was pleasant. Counting lunch, I hung out for 1.5 hours reading and listening to the music.

I took three pictures.
