Okinawan Festival 2014 – Photos

Last updated 8/31/14

These photos were shot between 2:50pm and 3:40pm on Saturday, 8/30/14, at the annual Okinawan Festival in Kapiolani Park, Honolulu. Thus, they capture only a brief 50-minute slice of the 2-day event. Still, they capture some of the excitement that the festival generates year after year.
