Utah Pasifika Festival

This weekend we attended the first annual Utah Pasifika Festival in Provo, UT. The festival was created to bring together Pacific Islanders in Utah and to encourage people to take an active role in the community. Although Pacific Islanders were a prime focus, the festival was open to people from all walks of life.
Aside from the intermittent rain that day, we did manage to keep as dry as possible. We made our rounds to each of the booths and filled up on homemade Hawaiian sausage, teriyaki plates, lau lau, ice cream and nutella crepes. Yum! We watched cultural performances from various groups and islands and the girls participated in some of the dancing as well listening to some very talented singers.
It wasn't bad for a first time festival and we look forward to going again next year. Ü
