We are both lucky and proud to live on an island such as Kauai. Not only are we blessed by our Lord God for the opportunity to be living in such a beautiful place, but it’s also such an historically fascinating one, and one that keeps that history alive and well to this day.
On Saturday, October 14th, from 9am-4 pm you can join in with one of Kauai’s most beautiful and historical re-created events. The 29th Annual Emalani Festival Kaua`i (Eo e Emalani i Alaka`i Festival) presented by Hui o Laka and held on the lush expanse of the Kanaloahuluhulu Meadow in Koke`e State Park.
This authentic Hawaiian cultural event recalls Queen Emma’s journey on horseback up into Kokee in 1871. Queen Emma will enter the meadow on horseback at 11am for a day of celebration, hula, history, song, and pageantry, all to honor this much loved monarch. And that’s not all, there will be crafts, exhibits, a silent auction, and a snack shop to purchase from. Carpooling is recommended, as is bringing your own blankets and chairs to sit on. But please, no tents, coolers or animals.
Admission is free and if you want to find out more you can call (808)-335-9975 or visit Kokee State Park’s website by clicking here.
