The Molokai Ag Country Fair may soon become a May Day tradition on Molokai.
Tomorrow, April 30, is the second annual Ag Country Fair at the Lanikeha Center in Ho’olehua from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Like last year, the event will showcase Molokai grown produce, meat products and informational exhibits.
A country store, silent auction, poultry show, grease pig contest and food, crafts informational displays are just a few of the things that are being offered. Other features of the event will include: Molokai-grown produce and animal products, entertainment featuring the Mana’o Trio, booths from the Homestead Associations, craft booths, a celebrity chili cook-off, game fowl show, Keiki Corner, dog show, lei making contest, orchid project and horse/pony rides.
Last year’s theme for the event was ag unity. Since sustainable living still encompasses the Molokai community, look for more new ideas from the Blue Planet Foundation and other vendors promoting sustainable living in all aspects, from alternative energy to innovations in agriculture.
To get things started, the Molokai Gamefowl Association is holding a special class at Coffees of Hawaii tonight at 5:30 p.m. You will see more classes and information about chicken breeding at the fair as well.
Pule begins at 9 a.m. at Lanikeha.
