Videos: Okinawan Festival 2018 Honolulu

The Honolulu 2018 Okinawan Festival was held at the Hawaii Convention Center (Sep. 1 & 2) instead of Kapi’olani Park for the first time. I was concerned about the size of the center. Would it be able to accommodate all the exhibits, booths, performances? Would it be able to absorb the thousands of visitors and volunteers? How would it manage the bon dance? Would participants be able to kick back in beach chairs and relax? To get a sense of the size and layout, I decided to shoot a video with my GoPro. I was surprised by the size of the exhibition hall on the first floor. It’s huge. It would easily accommodate the bon dance, food booths, etc. I’m not sure about the comfort level, though, for a two-day, all-day event. Beach chairs and large coolers aren’t allowed, and there are no grassy areas and shade trees.
