Is the a festival not to be missed? Im debating goin to the festival or doin the road to Hana that day?
No, it isn't a festival that you MUST go see. I have been twice. My husband is the cook in our house, and he sits in the front row and watches all the cooking demonstrations. He collects all the recipes, and tries to duplicate them here at home. Not easy without those wonderful Maui onions!
It is a lot of fun, and there are lots of food booths, all of them using Maui onions! There is also the Maui onion eating contest. One for the adults, and one for the keiki. Lots of fun, but if it is the only day you can do the RTH, go for the drive to Hana!
We can definitely do the drive another day but I was thinking because the festival is goin on maybe there will be less traffIc in rth? Are the food booths expensive?
I don't believe the onion festival will make any difference to the amount of traffic on the RTH. It will be a weekend, and there will be less big trucks on the road. But there may be less of the roadside food places open as well, as they are run by families, and they may very well be enjoying the weekend themselves....somewhere else!
The food booths at the festival run from inexpensive to expensive. It depends on what they are selling, and if seafood is offered as part of the recipe. They are not the sit down type of places as you are lining up at each booth. It is set up more like a fair. Lots of music and entertainment going on as well.
Parking is free that day!!!Edited: 27 February 2013, 05:43
