Pacific Tsunami Museum 9th Annual Story Festival

. March 21, 2011 . 0 Comments

The Pacific Tsunami Museum will host it’s 9th Annual Story Festival on Sunday, April 17, 2011.

The theme this year is “I Grew up on Piopio St.” It is that little bit of a street just behind the Chevron Station on the corner of Kamehameha and Pauahi that takes you across the Waiolama Canal and to the Visitor’s Center. It is an area rich in Hawaiian history. Piopio St. was once a thriving community of many different businesses interspersed with homes and fruit trees and one that elicits many fond memories of life, before it was wiped out by the 1960 tsunami. Individuals who grew up on Piopio St. will share their childhood memories as well as their tsunami experiences.
