This is a video clip of Kapena performing for a crowd of hundreds or maybe a couple thousand packing the street and beach in front of this stage.
There were a dozen or more food booths. I wanted to eat the Paniolo Chicken at a booth toward the area in front of Outrigger Waikiki. I walked the entire Ho'olaule'a before deciding on Paniolo Chicken. That was a mistake. By the time I got back to the Paniolo Chicken booth, they were done!! Sold out! It was only about 830pm! I didn't even take a picture of them roasting the chicken. This picture is of the Huli Huli Chicken booth. Huli Huli Chicken is a Hawaiian Rotiseree Chicken. It's probably the same as the Paniolo Chicken, but this booth ran out of rice! What a disappointment. I didn't eat any food from the booths. The picture on the right is Kalakaua Avenue's vehicular traffic. This is at about 1030pm and many are waiting and hoping the road is about to open up. The road usually opens up around 11pm. This Ho'olaule'a was not as crowded as last year's. Maybe it was because people thought it might rain. There was a lot of good stage performers out (Kapena, Maui, Society of Seven and some Hula Halau).
