The title phrase means Work is Done. Happy Labor Day on Monday! How are you going to celebrate this holiday? Are you off work or are you making “big bucks” working today?
My family and I will be at a family camp in the mountains. A fun time of relaxing and being with family and friends.
In Hawaii they celebrate the holiday much like any other state would.
The following information on
Honolulu’s 32nd Okinawan Festival
in Kapiolani Park on Oahu, August 30th and 31st, 2014 is found at this link:
The Okinawan Festival incorporates the normal events you’d find at most festivals like dance, food, kids’ activities, photo contests, cultural events, and music, but they also have some unusual happenings as well.
This is the first year the festival will be hosting a Scavenger Hunt! It seems the items the competitors will be hunting for are associated with the booths at the festival--so no keeping the treasures!! They have to be returned.
In past blogs I have highlighted many fun and amazing celebrations and festivals observed in the islands. I hope to re-visit many of these festivals (unfortunately, NOT by going there myself!) to see how they've changed or grown over the years.
Hmm, I may find some interesting new ones as well!
Enjoy learning more about this huge festival.
Aloha, and Mahalo for visiting!
