The Happy Melting Pot of Hawaii

The Happy Melting Pot of Hawaii

Once a week when you walk by Macdonald’s inside the Kona Walmart you can hear sweet Hawaiian songs being sung by tutus (grandmothers). They are dressed in colorful mumus, happily strumming their ukuleles and singing their Island songs.

Iration – Epic Summer Cruisin’

Their latest self-titled album…

It’s also home to filming locations for The Lost World Jurassic Park (1997) and Jurassic Park III (2001) – the second and third films in the series.
