Last weekend was a little nuts for residents and visitors, who attended this year’s 17th annual Coconut Festival, hosted by the Kapaa Business Association at Kapaa Beach Beark.
The two-day festival, which ran on Saturday and Sunday, featured 60 craft vendors, 21 cultural performances, seven cooking demonstrations from island chefs and a new variety of games for keiki.
This year’s festival, which included a variety of entertainment options, including taiko drumming and hula dancing, featured headlining performances by Amy Hanaialii Gilliom, a four-time Grammy Award nominee for Best Hawaiian Music Album.
Kap Teo-Tafiti from the Polynesian Cultural Center on Oahu, a crowd favorite, was also on hand to conduct fire making, coconut husking, fire dancing and coconut tree climbing on both days.
