Princess Ka’iulani Keiki Fest

Storybook Theater of Hawaii presented Princess Ka’iulani Keiki Fest Oct. 19 in Hanapepe. The annual festival offered Island keiki a day of fun that included performances by local hula halau, Hawaiian cultural activities, a parade of children in costume, celebrity story readers and readings by Kauai Children’s Authors Guild. The princess, played by McKenna Kamalani Lee Pascua, led the parade down main street, and this being a celebration of her birth in 1875, there was a birthday party.
