Just because your clients can’t visit Hawaii right now doesn’t mean they can’t partake in some of the festivities being hosted in the US island state.
Here are some virtual events that they can attend at the click of a button:

Koloa Plantation Days 2020
Koloa Plantation Days hosted its first-ever virtual festival last week. The festival usually occurs over 10 days to celebrate the plantation heritage and modern-day vitality of Kauai’s south shore communities of Koloa and Poipu.
This year’s virtual festival honoured the 2020 Grand Marshal, Kaneshiro Farms, for 35 years of support. The event was sponsored by Hawaii Tourism Authority, along with Koloa businesses and organisations.
