Hawaiian Interlude: Hula in Hilo

Hilo's ramshackle charm and minimal tourist scene make it the best town on the islands. Making it even better this day was that they were having a music festival honoring Queen Liliuokalani, the last Hawaiian queen. It started with hundreds of hula dancers scattered around the park. There was no way to get them all into a picture, so just imagine these few multiplied a hundred times. That's a whole lotta hula!
