Has the Merrie Monarch craziness hit you yet? Are you a performer or a part of the audience? Who's planning on coming to Hilo? Who's not? Who is already in Hilo and rather watch it on the tv?
As for me, my halau doesn't compete, but we do the Wednesday night exhibition every year. This is the first time in almost a decade that I am not going to be performing. I'm on "sabbatical" this year and will be watching excitedly from the sidelines.
