2016 Waikiki SPAM JAM

Presenting photo coverage of the 2016 Waikiki SPAM JAM. An always EPIC block party event that took place Saturday, April 30, 2016, spanning a HUGE crowd on Kalakaua Avenue, starting from Lewers Street, on up as far as Kaiulani, where the Hyatt Waikiki is.

The entertainment was outstanding, as was  da’ SPAM ‘kine grindz.

Enjoy. :-)

As you may have noticed already, there was a smudge on my Canon PowerShot S100’s rather tiny lens, hence the blur on one side of many of these shots. I didn’t notice it on-screen while out in the field. Oh well. Shots still turned out decent enough for publishing.
