Mid-Pacific Institute's Ho'olaule'a featured games, food and talent | Community Spirit
Nearly 2,000 students, teachers, faculty and parents attended Mid-Pacific Institute's Ho'olaule'a fair on Friday, March 16.
The annual event featured rock climbing, train rides, huge inflatable amusements, "mano a mano" Air Bot combat, a wide variety of food, and a concert starring local recording artists Natural Vibrations, Anuhea, Nesian NINE and Micah G. Students danced on the grass in rhythm with the pros as well as their school mates who competed in a talent contest.
Riley Graves-Lock and Kalama Epstein (video above), both sixth graders, won the middle school talent contest with their version of Maroon 5's "My Heart's a Stereo." Eighth grader Kai Wilding took second with his rousing performance of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy."
Hau'oli Moniz took first in the high school division with a passionate interpretation of Adele's "Someone Like You." Marielle Nakai placed second with her rendition of "Sunday Morning."
The Ho'olaule'a was put together by 250 Mid-Pac volunteers. The Mid-Pac Alumni Association handled a successful bake sale outside the gym.
