Labor Day has come and gone, the kids are back in school and we are headed into autumn.  It was a spectacular summer on Kauai, especially in Hanalei.  From dozens of beautifully crafted Koa Canoes gliding across the bay’s crystal clear waters, to outstanding sunsets that graced us all in majestic light,  the “land of make believe” did not hold anything back this year and put on a great show for all.

One of the most anticipated and celebrated events on the bay this past summer, was this year’s 4th annual Sand Festival. This family and team building event has been growing in size and diversity each and every year. This year was no exception, with hundreds of talented sand sculptures that comprised a total of 85teams. Admiration of the event is growing each year, too, with this year’s attendees totaling over 500! The range of creativity this year was outstanding, from a vintage VW bus and a substantial submarine, to a three dimensional replication of the entire island to a “four-legged” and breathing mermaid to name just a few!! Check out my photos below.

If you are venturing over to our tropical paradise next summer and have kids in the entourage, this event should not missed – in fact – you should participate!

As always, feel free to shoot me an email with any questions you have on our island. I look forward to being of service and welcoming you to this slice of paradise.
