The Kauai County Farm Bureau Fair took off last weekend as thousands of people gathered at Vidinha Stadium for the annual event, which dates back to 1922.
The four-day event, billed as “the island’s largest community event,” included musical performances, contests, live cooking and gardening demonstrations, and of course, E.K. Fernandez carnival rides, games and ono food prepared by volunteers from several local schools and community organizations.
Musical performances included Hoku nominated artist Shar Carrillo, Frank Cruz and Cruz Control, Paula Fuga, Hawaiian Teddy Bear, Paradox Lockdown, Paradise Big Band and Wally Rita Y Los Kauaianos.
Live demonstrations during this year’s fair on cooking or gardening tips were also provided by the Hawaii Tropical Fruit Growers’ Kauai Chapter, Kauai Beekeeper’s Association, Kauai Woodturners, Garden Island Orchid Society, Kauai Anthurium Association, Kauai Taro Growers, Kauai Bonsai Club, Kauai Cattlemen’s Association and Hawaii Tropical Flower and Foliage Association.
In all, about 53 organizations were listed as
sponsors for this year’s fair.
