It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Manoa last weekend — perfect weather, in fact, to be outside with some live entertainment and a few gallons of 'awa.

We were at UH-Manoa for the seventh annual Hawaii Pacific Islands Kava Festival, presented by the 'Awa Development Council, Hawaiian Kava Center and the UH-Manoa College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources.

After an traditional Hawaiian 'awa ceremony at noon, hosted by La'akea Suganuma, the afternoon featured performances by Johnny Helm, Michael Tanenbaum, Kupa'aina, One Right Turn, Jeff Peterson, Evasive Species, Kanoho Helm, Mike Love and Matty McIntire.
