Merrie Monarch Festival currently leading in USA Today poll

The Merrie Monarch Festival is uniquely Hawaiian in nature but of worldwide interest. The festival, held yearly in Hilo, is dedicated to King David Kalakaua, the “Merrie Monarch,” who revived the art of hula — which had been banned after Christian missionaries arrived in Hawaii in the 1820s.
