In today’s high stress world, it’s easy to get stressed out and ground down by the highly run of life. Our life is so safe and structured. So what is the best solution every now and then? Trying something new, going somewhere different, recharging the batteries and reconnecting with the life. Come to Hawaii, a place full of fun and festival events. Most people would think that Hawaii is a place only of beautiful scenery, actually they are wrong. Hawaii has not only splendid scenery, it also has rich culture. So it is a place never lack of interesting events. Come here and join the local people.
Every year, there are hundreds of culture events, but the most famous two are Honolulu Festival and Merrie Monarch Festival. But I do not mean that the other festivals here do not deserve your visit, surely they do. But these two are the most famous ones. And now I would like to introduce them in a more detailed way.
The Honolulu Festival here is held in March. And the first time it is celebrated in the year 1995 to promote the harmony between Hawaii and other Asia-Pacific countries. And in the year 2000, the Honolulu Festival Foundation, a non-profit organization, was founded there. The theme of the festival is “Pacific Harmony”, which means the culture in the Pacific region should be developed in a harmony way. These cultures include Republic of China (Taiwan), Australia, Korea, Philippines, China and the Mainland! This festival is held at the Ala Moana Shopping Center. And during the festival there is a parade through Waikiki. And almost all the events are free during that festival.
The Merrie Monarch Festival is held in April at Hilo. This festival is named after King Kalakaua. And during the festival all the people there will dance and sing together. The purpose of this festival is to reserve the culture, dance and the local music in Hawaii. During the festival, there are exhibits, the hula competition and the art craft fair which are held on the last three days of the festival.
