Mele Mei Festival Making Things To Do on Oahu Even Easier!

If you’re looking for things to do on Oahu during the month of May, the Mele Mei Festival is not something to miss! The festival is a month-long celebration of Hawaiian music, kicking off Saturday, April 27 and running through May 29. Talk about a great opportunity to immerse yourself in local culture during your Hawaii vacation.  All of the events will feature Hawaiian music, and many will offer the opportunity to taste local cuisine. Highlights of this year’s festival include the Hawaiian Grammys, known locally as the Na Hoku Hanohano Awards.   Also, a world record attempt to be the largest group of ukulele players to play a song will be led by renowned ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro. The event titled “Go For Da Record… Hana Hou!” is actually a second attempt to beat a group of 1,547 Swedish ukulele players who set the record in August 2011.  In order to break the record, the group needs to be in the same place and play the same song, in unison.  Come show support and be there when the record gets broken!
More than 20 events are scheduled.  Various Honolulu venues are set to host this year’s festivities.  Ranging from Waikiki hotels and hotspots for musical performances to the Honolulu Convention Center where the International Hula Conference is being held. There is something for everyone and fun for the whole family.  There may even be events scheduled at your hotel… When you know the where right place is to look, things to do on Oahu aren’t hard to find at all!
