HFWF 14: Finale at Ko Olina


The Hawai‘i Food and Wine Festival held its finale event, It’s a Food World After All, on the beach Sunday at Ko Olina Lagoon. It was a relaxed and fun way for the nine-day festival to wrap up, with 15 chefs offering creative dishes and several noteworthy winemakers on hand pouring select vintages. The evening ended with an elaborate fireworks show that unfolded over the lagoon.

Here are some of the highlights:

A lot to love about the setting for this event… on the beach, which means bare feet and slippers for all amid the sunset and moonlight.
