Mahalo nui loa to Denelle Manoa for all of the hard work she put into the festival in organizing all of the vendors, concessions, keeping things running smoothly at the event, manning the welcome booth relentlessly, making sure that those that need to be checked in is checked in, entertainment is organized as well as all of the work she put into the festival during the year like contacting vendors, keeping social media updated, being an awesome mother at home and coordinating all of the participants prior to the event. Its a lot of work and I appreciate her effort and sacrifice. Again Mahalo Denelle
