Kauai’s mountain forest echoes with the sounds of Hawaiian music and traditional chants at this free annual festival, held the second Saturday in October, mist or shine. Attend the “Eo e Emalani i Alaka‘i” festival and step back in time, when a traditional royal procession arrives at noon (festivities begin at 10 am).

Exhibits, craft demonstrations, and snack sales make it a lovely day out for all.
