After a two-year pandemic pause, the Best of Kona Fest, in its second offering, returned for a day of celebration last Saturday. Boasting a wide array of the area’s food and fashion, live music was the main feature for some 400 people who attended the event on the oceanfront lawn at the Kona Inn Shopping Village.
