Kava Festival 2011

Soft had an easy going day at the Kava festival, where kava is drunk, poi is pounded, lomi lomi is practiced and the music is slammin'! The kava festival is a celebration of Hawaii and Pacific Island 'awa where educational booths and vendors from around O'ahu joined forces. This year, Soft sold our own fresh frozen and dry powdered kava, along with our usual produce. We had many visitors, asking questions and talking story. One visitor we were pleased to have our picture taken with was our very own Dean of CTAHR, Silvia Yuen.
