Honolulu Night Market x Pow Wow Hawaii 2014 Block Party Photos

On Saturday February 15th we wrapped up Pow Wow Hawaii 2014 weekend. It was an intense block party with thousands in attendance. The streets were packed with Honolulu Night Market party goers, artists, vendors and so much more.


We managed to snap a few photos in the madness, but these photos in no way do justice to just how awesome of an event it was.  Check out our photos below.
