Bamboo Festival

A packed audience listens to Bobby Grimes -- a resident of Paauilo Mauka -- talked about bamboo construction and joinery techniques, safe harvesting practices, and dealing with large timber bamboos. The talk was part of the 11th Annual Bamboo Festival held at Papaikou Hongwanji today.
The Hawaii Bamboo Society hosted the festival that featured exhibits, demonstrations, sale of numerous bamboo varieties, concessions and a silent auction. The group is the Hawaii Chapter of the American Bamboo Society which seeks to provide a source of information on the identification, propagation, utilization, culture and appreciation of bamboos.
