A small town rocks like a CoolTown

Now this is how to rock like the big cities. It doesn’t get much better when you the area’s best bands take the stage in front of what seems like half the population of the entire town cheering them on, with the backdrop of the downtown main street on one end and the ocean on the other.

Even in a quiet, economically-challenged small town that’s the subject of a local comedian’s sarcastic song, “Hilo, the most exciting place on earth”, a creative team of the area’s most creative artists, entrepreneurs and entertainers can start to turn things around – creativity equals economic growth.

You know it’s a small town (47,000 people) when the event’s sound system was set up by my cousins who happen to live next door.
