Debra Sue Kelvin was trying to get her iPhone to do a panoramic photo during the Music and Mango festival (great job, Kalen Kelekoma!) Sunday at the Halulu Fishpond (Makaala Kaaumoana said this is one of three in the area) in the ahupuaa of Waipa.
Charlie Perreira was there doing his fishnet weaving (and where was Uncle Larry Rivera?) just like he does at the Kalo festival (Kalen said this one’s coming in December), and Rose Ramos Benzel brought her mango creation all the way from town.
Billie Smith was also far away from Koloa, helping Mason Chock’s mother at the Kauai Challenge booth where they featured some Thai food (Jean Souza got to try some of that), and Lady Ipo was going crazy over the Fried Ice Cream (mango?) being offered by the Kawaikini school people.
Rachel Smith of the Kauai Invasive Species Committee (will she be at the Kauai County Farm Bureau Fair this weekend?) was kept busy with all the questions about invasives (no mongoose), and Lahela Correa said it was OK to weave while everyone talked about mango.
