Lihue Keiki fest showcases talent

Getting the students from the Kapaa Middle School Choir and Ukulele Band to the Heritage Music Festival in Anaheim, Calif., is an expensive proposition, said Mary Lardizabal, the program’s director.

As a fundraising effort to offset some of the expenses involved in taking the choir and band to the competition, the KMS Choir Booster’s Club hosted Aloha Keiki Fest, featuring an afternoon of keiki talent from around the island.

The entertainment lineup was bolstered by crafters, food vendors and activity stations that kept traffic flowing through the Kauai Veterans Center parking lot, where K’s Shave Ice and Treats food truck helped keep the heat in control.

Lardizabal said they also put out fishbowls to collect for some of the participating schools.
