It is the most popular city during the"Merry Monarch Festival", which is held for a week from Easter every spring. This is the largest festival in Hula, named after King Kalakaua's nickname "Merry Monarch" (meaning cheerful monarch), who restored the hula that was forbidden by Christian missionaries. In the beginning there used to be a recital, but since 1971 it was changed to a competition where people compete for points by judges. Nowadays, it is as popular as a general festival that includes not only hula music and dance, but also parades and musicals.
