Romang Peake came home from New York to be part of the festivities Sunday when the Family and Friends of Agriculture presented its fifth anniversary Harvest Ag Festival at the Waimea Athletic Field.

“I’m a Tumbaga girl,” Peake said. “We, my sister Karlina Vea, always come to support this by coming to eat.”

Peake and Vea were part of more than 1,000 people who flocked to the festivities where more than 1,500 free pumpkins were distributed to eager keiki — 12 years and younger — in time to carve jack-o-lanterns for Halloween.

The festival featured entertainment, including an appearance by Kapena, to enhance the many food offerings presented by nonprofits, including the Purple Palooza American Cancer Society Relay for Life team which hosts a relay fundraiser Friday night at the historic Waimea Theatre.
