Chinese New Year Festival 2011 in Hilo

 Kung Hee Fat Choy! 
We celebrated its 9th Annual Hilo Chinese New Year Festival this past Saturday February 12.

恭賀新年!恒例第九回目となるヒロ・チャイニーズ・ニュー・イヤー・フェスティバルが2月12日土曜日に開催されました!

 Here at Sig Zane Designs, the early morning was spent prepping the store for the lion's visit.
こちらシグ・ゼーン・デザインズ店では獅子舞の訪問準備の為に大忙し。

 This is Sig getting the offering of Chinese cabbage ready for the lion above the doorway.
シグがドアの上に獅子に供える白菜を取り付けているところ。

 This is Kuha'o, Sig's son and graphic designer, prepping the firecrackers that is going to be hung right in front of the store! Look how long it is...
こちらシグの息子でグラフィック・デザイナーでもあるクハオ君です。お店の前に吊る爆竹を用意しているんんですが、とぐろを巻いているこの長~い爆竹、すごいんです!

 And this is the Year of the Rabbit T-shirts!
 CUTE!!
こちらが今年の干支Tシャツで~す!
かわいいでしょ♪

 This is Hana Hou, one of my most favorite stores in Hilo (or in the world for that matter!) And they had an awesome firecracker and blessing.
 こちら、ダウンタウンにある大好きなブティック、ハナ・ホウ。お洒落でセンスの好いハワイアナ・グッズが揃っています。

 Here they come...
さあ、やって来ました・・・

 The lion dancing was presented by Ed Yap's Big Island Shaolin Arts Lion Dancers. 
They are an awesome team of lion dancers, so exciting and animated.
獅子舞を提供したのはエド・ヤップ率いるビッグ・アイランド・シャオリン・アーツ・ライオン・ダンサーズ。とっても躍動的でエクサイティングな獅子舞なんです。




 The Lion enters Hana Hou to bless the store...
獅子舞がハナ・ホウへやって来て店内へ・・・

 Michelle, the store owner and family looks on as the lion devours the offerings after the blessing of the store.
 オーナーのミッシェルと家族が見守る中、祝福を済ませた獅子がお供え物を食べます。これが中華式の風習なんですね。

 Kids just LOVE the Lion and watches through the window as it eats the cabbage that was hanging just above.
子供は獅子舞が大好き!窓越しに獅子がお供えのキャベツを食べるのを真剣に見入っています。
 That's Sig and Luke, with some cool tenuguis (cotton hand towels) on the wall from Nuguu in Kamakura!
Mahalo for the good time!
「正装」したシグとルーク(息子です)。壁に飾ってあるのは鎌倉にある手ぬぐいショップ、「拭う」の作品です!

 It was a gorgeous day in Hilo, and at Kalakaua Park. I hope King Kalakaua, who's Summer House used to be just across the street was happy to have such fun and happy festival at his place!
素晴らしいお天気に恵まれた一日。カラカウア王の夏の御用邸が王様の名前の付いたこちらの公園の真向かいにありました。王様もこんなに大勢の人でにぎわったお祭りに悦んでいただけているでしょう!

 There was a Keiki Costume Contest too.
子供の仮装コンテストもありました。

Lastly but not least, mahalo to Nelson Makua of Na Makua for the great Year of the Rabbit design!
最後になりましたが、ナ・マクアのネルソン・マクアのデザインした干支Tシャツも素敵ですよね!
