Story of unveiling will be reenacted

LIHUE — A musical celebration on Saturday will include a recreation of the unveiling of Prince Kuhio’s statue and share the story of the unveiling, which took place on June 17, 1928.

The Royal Hawaiian Band will perform at the event scheduled 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Prince Kuhio Park.

The concert is being held where Prince Kuhio was born in 1871. The performance is also a tribute to the prince, who was raised in Koloa and was elected as Hawaii’s congressional delegate for 10 terms.

The festivities will welcome the full RHB for their first performance on Kauai since 1928

“I think it’s a happy time, especially for our kupuna,” event chairman Chucky Boy Chock said.

Also performing will be Darryl Gonzales and Palani Vaughn, while Kimo Kahoano will be the master of ceremonies.

Tickets are $10 in advance at the Kauai Museum or at the gate.

Proceeds will benefit the Kauai Museum and the Royal Order of Kamehameha Maumualii Chapter.
