Mahalo to all you readers of The Garden Island! Who did you say “Mahalo” to on Wednesday — Mahalo Wednesday? We had Black Friday, Shop Small Saturday, a break on Sunday (er, Feast of the Holy Sovereigns?), Cyber Monday, and Giving Tuesday – what’s next?
Lyah Kama Drake and Chucky Boy Chock said we have the Kauai Museum Christmas Craft Fair, Friday from 10 a.m. (OK, when is the best time to check out the roast pork from Kamehameha Schools?), and David Sossner said he got to check out a preview of the Holiday Lights Spectacular at the Kukui Grove Center which wraps up a long Friday…
Elizabeth Freeman opens the Festival of Lights starting at 6 p.m. at the historic County Building (Lois Ricciardi will have the Kauai Chorale singing – are Wes Cronk and Newton Young going to be there?), and at 6:30 p.m., the Lights on Rice holiday parade comes up the main drag in Lihue (Derek Kawakami had people decorating his building to add to the color Jim Gueber and Larry Feinstein put up at the Kauai Beer Co. – they have a Christmas movie in the park coming up at Kalena Park later this month, too!).
Kudos to Lenny Rapozo and his Parks and Rec ‘ohana on doing a great job hosting all those clinics, and now, the Life Champions Bowl (was nice to see Vaughn Meatoga after all these years), Saturday when gates open (yes, we have some of our Kauai Interscholastic Federation football greats participating, too!) at 10 a.m. at Vidinha Stadium.
The holidays are here!
