Hawaii Koa Naturals

Merrie Monarch Festival, 2010

Nothing, not even a dismal economy can put a damper on the biggest annual hula festival in the world! The Merrie Monarch Festival attracts not only the dancers themselves, but also their teachers, musicians, and a variety of artisans and craftspersons to the sometimes sleepy town of Hilo on the Big Island of Hawai’i. A world of colorful scenes and rhythmic sounds awaits residents and tourists alike who are lucky enough to partake of this marvelous week of Hawaiian culture.
