SUNSET ON THE BEACH THIS WEEKEND 

Ocean Sciences Week with the UH School of Ocean and Earth Sciences and Technology will be the theme this weekend at Sunset on the Beach, Saturday, April 13 and Sunday, April 14, at the beautiful Queen’s Surf Beach in Waikiki.  If you haven’t yet experienced the popular free beachside extravaganza, make it a point to do so this weekend, as warm weather is predicted to return.  The event offers great food from a variety of local eateries, live entertainment and blockbuster movies on a giant 30-foot screen beneath a canopy of stars on the water’s edge. 

To recognize Ocean Sciences Week, Sunset will show a short film of our marine resources and host an eminent professor from the Ocean Sciences Department as our special guest this weekend.  He will address elements found in our featured films, “Atlantis” on Saturday and “Jurassic Park” (partially filmed in Hawaii) on Sunday.   Movies begin at 7 p.m. following live entertainment from 4:30 to 6:45 p.m. provided by EXTREME 104.3 and FM-100 radio stations.  Deejays from both stations will engage the audience in contests and prizes.   

            Sunset guests may purchase delectable munchies throughout the evening beginning at 4 p.m.  Chose from a wide menu selection, from chef’s signature presentations to pizzas, hot dogs and snacks, at very reasonable prices.  Participating restaurants this weekend are Seafood Village, Suekko Ramen, Davey Jones Ribs, Pizza Hut, Royal Hawaiian Hot Dogs, The Nutty Hawaiian, Ft. Ruger Market, Simply Ono Popcorn, Beach House Beverage Cart and newcomer Sweet Street Desserts, purveyor and distributors of fine deserts, cakes, breads and ice cream. 

Sponsored by the City, the Hawaii Restaurant Association, Waikiki Improvement Association, EXTREME 104.3 and FM100 radio, KHNL News8 and K5, Sunset on the Beach was created as a Waikiki revitalization program to bring residents and visitors together in an effort to spur economic development.
