Hard Ice and a Kaua‘i version of GuriGuri (the real one is on Maui!) from Da Booze Shop (See? People can get the treats long after bon dance in Waimea, and the Ayau ‘ohana is trying to juggle their busy schedule and participating in the Waimea Christmas parade) were just some of the offerings at the last bon dance on the Kaua‘i Buddhist Council 2023 calendar at the Waimea Higashi Hongwanji (mahalo, neighboring businesses for sharing parking for the little temple tucked in the middle of a typical plantation camp, the real-life model of what the Koloa Plantation Days celebrates.)
Tammy Puu (Mahina ran out of pink hair coloring used on her horse for the Koloa Plantation Days parade, or would’ve had pink hair, too) and sister Shelley Gerardo participated in the Koloa Plantation Days festivities (nice shirts, Kuku‘iula Development!) and still was able to catch the bon dance … are we going to have time to take in the Grand Hyatt Kaua‘i event (Rev. Tomo Hojo of the West Kaua‘i Hongwanji said he’s doing the blessing when it happens)?
