Kalakaua was blocked and traffic rerouted the entire length of the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center. It was crowded, hot and lots of Fun! There were two stages at opposite ends with bands playing and the crowd swaying and dancing along.
In between on both sided of the avenue you could but Spam food creations, Spam trinkets, hats & tshirts. And a whole assortment of products made by vendors that paid a fee for access to the throngs of people gathered to pay homage to this WWII era MRE / K ration.
