Things To Do In Hawaii? Then join with the Valentine Bluegrass Festival in Pearl City, ‘Bluegrass’ is a form of music which has American roots but it also has Irish, Scottish and English traditional roots. It is a related genre of country music and was influenced by African-Americans through the incorporation of jazz, a lot of things to do in Hawaii.
Bluegrass is initially said to be done by a man named Bill Monroe and he was born in Bluegrass state, Kentucky. He had a band named “Bill Monroe and the Blue Grass Boys,” and this band started a new form of “traditional” country music.
Example of such music can be heard from the songs of Foggy Mountain Boys. It is said that only the best of the best can play this form of music. Many festivals and events are made surrounding Bluegrass music and such events can also be found in the mystical tourism lands of Hawaii, particularly in Pearl City.
Pearl City is dubbed as the ‘Central Oahu’ of Hawaii. Unlike the rest of Hawaii, Pearl City is comparatively less packed with tourists. But still, this calm and quiet city has many things to do offer. Even though it is not primarily a place for tourists, the city hosts charming events from time to time which attracts both foreigners and locals. Even on Valentine’s Day and after it, many festivals and events are hosted in the charming city. We all know that Valentine’s day is celebrated as a day of expressing love and also to pay homage to St. Valentine, who sacrificed his life so that Romanian soldiers could be with the ones they love. A Valentine Bluegrass Festival is held after the Valentine’s Day which commemorates this blessing of love and also celebrates the special form of music- Bluegrass.
Favorite songs like “I’m head over heels in Love” by Flatt and Scruggs, “Still They Call Me Love” by The Grascals will definitely be played by the great performers at the festival. With such loving tunes to hear, this festival is the best place to go with your significant other, but worry not if you don’t have one as the festival can be enjoyed either way.
As said earlier, only the best of the best can play the intricate styles of Bluegrass. So you must feel special when you dance to the tunes of your favorite Bluegrass songs and enjoy your time! There are many other activities that can entertain you at the festival other than spectating beautiful performances, for example- a dance floor, different festival games and mouth-watering traditional delicacies. All the festivals held at Hawaii are usually very lively and surrounded by many food carts. The food carts have almost every Hawaiian dish you can think of starting from Lau Lau and Lomi Lomi Salmon to shaved ice. The festival is a wonderful place to have a great time with your family and there is no way for children to get monotonous in the lively atmosphere as well.
