"Something is happening
every month on Guam!
Check out Guam Events."
I usually pick up local magazines to check any current Guam events when I arrive there.There are several magazines at every major hotel lobby. And it's free to take. So why not use it, right?
Guam has a very unique
village party called, "FIESTA".
The fiesta is a popular Guam events that people on Guam share their culture with guests.You can feel their hospitality.There are lots of, lots of food every fiesta. You can taste a true local food such as Barbecued chicken and rib, Kelaguen made by combining minced chicken, beef or shrimp with lemon juice,coconut and hot peppers. Don't forget to use dipping sauce called "finadene"when you eat BBQ meats. It is made with red hot peppers, onions and vinegar or soy sauce.

"ANNUAL JAPANESE AUTUMN FESTIVAL"
Guam's most tourists are coming from Japan.So lots of Japanese live on Guam as well, and they started Autumn Festival about 30 years ago.It got very popular even though it's not Guam cultural thing. That's another Guam's hospitality spirit, I guess.You can enjoy authentic Japanese foods, toys and games there.The event starts from late in the afternoon until night at Ypao Beach Park.Admission is free but you have to buy coupon to purchase food and beverages.
My daughter, Reina, likes to try game such as catching golden fish, water ball and so on.I like to enjoy Japanese fine cuisines. Yummy Yummy,again. ;)
