Residents and visitors celebrated the peak of mango season at the Moana Surfrider’s annual “Mangoes at the Moana.” Makaha Mangoes was one of the big sponsors — and mango suppliers — so their logo was everywhere.

While the chef’s mango throwdown was a highlight of the day, the Mango Festival also features a recipe contest and a “best mango” contest in the morning. One showcases recipes submitted by amateur cooks; the other is a display of fruits from various Hawaii farmers and the public is invited to taste their wares. Celebrity judges determine the winners for both contests.
