Okinawan Festival 2009
Since my mom had bought some Okinawan Festival scripts from a friend, we headed on down to Kapiolani Park yesterday to help her spend it!
We browsed through an arts and craft tent, a country store, and another tent selling orchid plants. My mom picked up a really pretty orchid that will look great once it blooms. We passed the entertainment stage and a bunch of kid’s games making our way to the Okinawan culture tent.
Around this time I realized I could blog about the festival so I started to take a couple pictures. Above and below are pictures of the many bonsai plants that were on display.
Next it was time for some food!
The line for the andagi went really quickly
It was perfect – crunchy on the outside and warm and soft on the inside!
We also ordered several yakisoba plates for our early dinner.
Before heading home, we took our snacks and dinner to the Diamond Head lookout and enjoyed our food with these views…
