Art festival

While driving back to Aulani, we noticed an "Art Festival" sign just down the road a couple of blocks.  We decided we'd head down there to see what was going on.  It wasn't a huge festival but they had some vendors selling some cute jewelry, paintings, clothing and other assorted goods.  There were these Chinese dragons dancing around and going in and out of the vendor booths.

When they entered the booth, the dragons opened their mouths and the vendors placed a red envelope in.  We asked what this was and why it was done.  We were told there was money in the envelope and that the dragons entering the booth brought a blessing on the business.  Hmmm...interesting.

The festival was held in a beautiful park right next to the ocean and, of course, I had to snap a couple of pix of the ocean.
