Hawaii Plantation Village celebrates Puerto Rican heritage in the Islands from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday with its Puerto Rican Day on the Plantation Festival.
Between 1878 and 1913, approximately 5,200 Puerto Ricans came to Hawaii to work on the sugar plantations throughout the Islands. The event highlights this culture with tours of La Casita (Puerto Rican plantation house), Puetro Rican dance and music, a country store and authentic pastele and gandule rice plate lunches.
Admission and parking are free. For more information, call 677-0110.
Puerto Rican Day on the Plantation is sponsored by HPV and the Puerto Rican Heritage Society of Hawaii.
