Celebrating cultural exchange and friendship between Hawaii and the Pacific Rim region, this bustling festival (or ‘Ho‘olaule‘a’ as the locals call it) in Waikiki, Honolulu draws a pretty impressive crowd each year. Pick and choose from the free entertainment lined up on several stages, including Japanese Taiko drums, Korean dance, Hawaiian music and, of course, plenty of hula, or find a new hobby at the arts and crafts fair, getting some hands-on experience with, say, calligraphy or flower arrangement. Food wise, there’s also a lot to choose from – think stacks of ethnic fare as well as local grub or, if you’re feeling boring, classic American burgers and fries. The three-day festival rounds off with a lively parade marching down Kalakaua Avenue, showcasing the cultural diversity of the Pan-Pacific area.
