The 2013 Merrie Monarch Festival: A Yearly Event in Honor of and Dedicated to His Majesty the Late King Kalākaua of Hawai’i. (VIDEOS)

2013_large-1Well, it’s that time of year again!  It’s the 2013 Merrie Monarch Festival a yearly event which “…honors the legacy left by King David Kalākaua, who inspired the perpetuation of our traditions, native language and the arts.”  Yay!  So, yeah, every year I mention this fantastic event because, well, I can.   🙂 Moreover, it is truly a great event that everyone must see at least once in their lifetime.

With that being said, if you are interested watching the hula competitions via live stream on KFVE 5 please click here.  Live streaming of the 50th Annual Merrie Monarch Festival begins at 6PM Hawai’i time.  Or, you can watch yesterday’s event, Merrie Monarch Backstage, here.   🙂
