2008 Aloha Festivals

This week marks the beginning of Aloha Week in Hawaii.  The festival, designed to celebrate the culture and beauty of Hawaii, will kick off today in Waikiki with the highly anticipated Waikiki Ho’olaule’a.

This massive block party stretches along the 12 city blocks that make up Waikiki’s famous Kalakaua Boulevard.  There will be food and lei vendors galore, as well as eight different entertainment stages, spread out from one end of Waikiki to the next.  This one is free to the public and kicks off at 7pm.

On Saturday at the Kapiolani Park Bandstand is the Hapa Haole Hula and Music Festival.  This event, sponsored by the PAI Foundation, kicks off at noon.

On Sunday, Aloha Tower Market Place presents their third annual Ukulele Festival.  This one starts at 10am at the Aloha Tower Center Stage.

As you can see there’s a lot going on this weekend, so get out there, rock your Aloha Festivals ribbon and celebrate everything that makes Hawaii unique.

You can scoop up a ribbon at most major local retailers, including Longs and all 7-11 locations.
