Coverage: 2017 Pan-Pacific Ho’olaule’a

The 38th Annual Pan-Pacific Festival took place this past weekend in Honolulu, bringing various foods, customs, and people together from across the Pacific, creating a more global community through the sharing and celebration of cultures. It showcases performing arts with cultural performances and demonstrations, food, crafts and more. Part of this 3-day festival is the Pan-Pacific Ho’olaulea, a block party held in Waikiki on Kalakaua Avenue, which took place Friday night from 7 to 10pm. Following is (food-centric) photo coverage from that event. Enjoy. ;-)
