Alexie Lane-Schwarze had to hurry with her POG Ono Pops so got help from mom, Leslie Lane-Schwarze in finishing off the treat in the craft tent at the Coconut Festival (Ed Kawamura was working the event, two days).
Alexie was showing off an illuminated Ghost Buster costume being offered by Hurricane Lane, Leslie’s other job outside of being a nurse.
Vianne Tabata said it was a good thing Lyle had an agricultural background because he could answer visitors’ questions about the coconut, the source of inspiration for the event presented by the Kapaa Business Association (it’s a good thing Kenny Ishii’s restaurant is so close to the Kapaa Beach Park).
Mary Lardizabal said the Kapaa Middle School Ukulele Band (they were playing for two days, too) will be participating in the Veterans Day Parade, Nov. 5, but need to make a hasty getaway because they’re hosting a fundraiser at the Hilton in the afternoon.
OK, time to make a check with Dr. Addison Bulosan and the Kauai Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours with The Specific and Hale Opio (maybe we’ll run into Vonn Ramos, too).
