Grains of goodness at Rice Fest
September is officially designated National Rice Month by the USA Rice Federation, so come celebrate a day full of family-fun activities. The focus will, of course, be on rice, from eating to cooking to learning about its history.
"This year, we are partnering with YouTube sensations Kings of Kaukau to build another Guinness World Record-breaking SPAM musubi," says Rice Fest founder Ed Sugimoto in a release statement. "Getting our name in the global record books last year was a pretty exciting thing, and we're going to surpass our own record on (Saturday).
The day will be filled with celebrity and chef cooking demonstrations, a Spam Musubi and “Riceipe” cooking contests, and another attempt to build the Guinness World Record for the largest Spam Musubi.
In addition to the monster musubi, Rice Fest this year will feature live entertainment by Jody Kamisato and Ukulele Hale, and taiko by Ryukyukoku Matsuri Daiko. Attendess can also donate bags of rice for Lanakila Pacific’s “Meals on Wheels,” a nonprofit volunteer-run program and Hawaii’s only island-wide meal service for needy seniors.
