In addition to exhibits, some of the freshest grown produce and most diverse plants will be available at the always-popular Kamehameha Schools’ Country Market and Plant sale.
Keiki will enjoy live animals including steer, goats, chickens, pigs and more in the 4-H Livestock Tent. There will also be festive entertainment acts, demonstrations, fun-filled on-stage contests like watermelon eating, corn husking and chili pepper eating, in addition to kiddie rides, bouncers and mouth-watering food.
Bring little ones to enjoy the Keiki Hands on the Farm exhibit which gives young children a chance to experience what a day on the farm is like, along with milking a life-sized cow (replica), a chick hatchery with live chicks and more.
