Honolulu Festival

Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth at Honolulu Festival this past weekend!  The festival celebrates the cultures of the Pacific.  Groups from Japan, Alaska, Australia, and more gather to perform native dances, cook up yummy delicacies, and sell handcrafted goods.  Bit of Sugar featured our Handmade in Hawaii shave ice and message in a bottle necklaces.

One of the most colorful areas of the room was the Ennichi Corner, featuring carnival games, cotton candy, and of course, PRIZES!!!

Fishing for new friends!

An amezaiku artist was there handcrafting rabbits, flowers, dolphins, and all kinds of cute animals.  She starts with a molten mass of sugar and uses fans and scissors to shape and mold the candy.  

Takoyaki is a popular Japanese street food.  To the uninitiated, it may seem disgusting - little bits of octopus grilled in a pancake-like batter and topped with what can only be described as "special sauce."  However, when it's served right off the grill, it's a delicious little ball of happiness!

Takoyaki - yum!
