Iolani Palace was all decked out for evening tours this past weekend to honor Queen Kapiolani’s Birthday-- which fell on New Year’s Eve.

We went along for a night tour of the palace and talked to authors of a new book about the palace history. We start off with chamber music in the Blue room and end with Hula in the throne room. We were talking to the authors of a new book documenting the palace history, Carol Maxym and MacKinnon Simpson.
