Mardi Gras

In just the last few years, Honolulu has been moving the “Mardi Gras Ball.” Would be nice as an early entree to the pleasurable traditions of Mardi Gras in the Mainland, including a New Orleans trademark grouping — the krewe. Last year they had a Mardi Gras block party.

"Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth."

This year Honolulu has called party-loving and community-minded friends to join in Honolulu’s first krewe. In the absurdist tradition of Mardi Gras, these trendsetters are calling themselves Krewe of Da Kine at the Manifest in Chinatown.

With notable socialites and event organizers in the bunch, this should give a bump to the proceedings. In Kapolei this will not happen until next year. Perhaps see more krewes form, even going so far as taking over the process of creating a Kapolei float for the Carnival. With Chinatown establishments, arts groups and social clubs as natural participants, Mardi Gras in jumping in town.

Next year we may have complete carnaval in Kapolei and not have to worry about the Rail Humbug or the Honolulu Traffic Jams. And I met someone that may try something new.  A Night Club with a large screen where the band would sit and the music for the dance would be on video. The entire musical ensemble and the singer. Wow!
