Guam - With the 27th Annual Guam Micronesia Island Fair taking place this weekend, we kick off a 5-part series highlighting the sights, sounds, and food. We begin with the Hurao Academy.

For Hurao Academy, being part of the GMIF is important. Founder Anamarie Arceo told KUAM News, "Some of our cultural ways are actually misconstrued as Polynesia, so making a clarification really make that distinction. And cry out with a big hurray - positive thing for the people in this area."

All this week Hurao has been prepping several latte stones for not only the center stage but for their booth, which will serve as the entity representing Guam at the fair. If you stop by their booth, expect an array of arts and crafts, weaving demonstrations, and more focused around the coconut, the many uses of the coconut and Guam legends, which relates to this year's theme - "Legends Of Micronesia".

Arceo truly believes a visit to the Guam Micronesia Island Fair will immerse you in culture and have you leaving with a greater appreciation for our island. "If you have a busy life like we all do, the GMIF is a place to feel culture. Remember your roots and know where you came from and so everybody should come down and enjoy this spirit that comes once a year."

The 27th Annual Guam Micronesia Island Fair begins Friday, April 25 through Sunday, April 27 at Ypao Beach Park.
