A couple weekends ago, we got to go to Spam Jam 2014. It was a street festival where local restaurants served up their best spam recipes. Since the festival started at 4 pm, we decided to make a night of it and got a hotel for the night too.
The festival was so huge, the street was closed down so it took like an hour to get to the hotel but it was worth it because the place was really nice. Just check out the view! All those tents down there are for the festival. There were performers on a couple stages and even some dudes walking around in spam costumes.
We got there right around 4 and the street were already packed. The food tents were already serving up some food. I have to be honest, I’m not a huge spam fan so this was mostly for Hubs. The kids like spam at the house so we were hoping that they would like some of the food too.
Then we tried some spam pizza. We also got some french fries because Piglet was starting to freak out. Hubs and Blueberry ate the pizza and both agreed that it was good. At this point, we had walked all the way to end and Piglet wanted to keep walking, right out of the crowd. It was very overwhelming for him. When I told him to turn around so we could head home, he freaked out.
The last thing we were able to do before Piglet melted down, was donate a can of spam to the Hawaiian Food Bank. As a thank you, they gave us some spam flavored macadamia nuts. Hawaiians love their spam, on everything apparently. Hubs said they taste salty but he hasn’t had any since the initial try. *shrug*
I don’t know if we’ll go back to Spam Jam next year, by then, we’ll have 3 bambinos and that might just be too hard but we’ll see. This new baby is going to have to get used to sightseeing!
