Haiku Flower Festival - 2011 Highlights

Last year, I had a great time going to the Haiku Ho'olaulea or Haiku Flower Festival.  It's a fundraiser for Haiku Elementary and many of their extracurricular programs. It's from 9 am to 4 pm tomorrow at the Haiku Community Center. 

There are plenty of things for adults and for kids...

Kathy "Tita" Collins, local comedian.

Flower arranging contest with exotic flowers.

Selecting native plants for haku lei making with the
Native Hawaiian Plant Society. Or visit their Facebook page

Grandmother's Council of Maui, nonprofit booth

Vince Mina of Maui Farmer's Union, a really worthwhile
organization NOT just for farmers.

Some food booths last year. 
Highlights from last year including making haku leis from native plants with Maui's Native Hawaiian Plant Society, roaming the local produce and food booths, meeting a harpist from St. Petersburg, Russia, and checking out the bake sale and silent auction. There was plenty of live entertainment too, and it was a bit muddy. Ah well, that's Haiku. Let's hope for sun tomorrow. 

Harpist Tatiana of St. Petersburg, Russia, and her partner Stefan.

Star Trek Silent Auction items donated by The Perfect Fit.
