Flashback to Honokaa’s Western Week

#TBT: I recently found this wonderful video on YouTube. It’s about Honokaa town’s Western Week Celebration which consists of a number of events including a block party and parade, highlighted by a weekend of rodeo fun. The film captures the major events from the 2017 celebration and presents the viewer with some historic information on the origins of Honokaa’s Western Week and cowboy culture on Hawaii Island. Check it out.
