INTERNATIONAL MARKET PLACE PRESENTS SUNSET ON THE BEACH
Sunset on the Beach resumes this weekend, Saturday, December 14 and Sunday, December 15, at beautiful Queen’s Surf Beach in Waikiki, due to the generosity of event sponsor International Market Place, owned and managed by The Queen Emma Foundation. Wayne Nakashima, a project manager at The Queen Emma Foundation and the manager of International Marketplace, will be on hand to welcome the crowd at the popular weekend event.
The largest food-music-movie fest on the beach, “Sunset on the Beach” offers an effective stress-buster -- relaxing on the water’s edge with a cool non-alcoholic beverage while munching mouth-watering appetizers and delicious entrees, and enjoying free live entertainment and first-run movies.
The fun begins at 4 p.m. with food booths and music. At 4:15 p.m., radio station FM 100 KCCN features crowd-pleasing entertainment such as “Mehana” and the “Polynesian Cultural Center” on Saturday, and “All Jammed Up” on Sunday, while deejays engage the audience in fun, contests and prizes.
At 6:30 p.m., enjoy blockbuster movies on a giant 30-foot screen. Saturday, it’s “Stuart Little 2,” that irrepressible three-inch mouse who is adopted by a human family, back to save his new friend, Margalo, a fine-feathered femme fatale who is pursued by an evil Falcon. A charming sequel to the original family hit by E. B. White, Stuart Little 2 is an excellent film for children, with Michael J. Fox as the voice of Stuart, and the beautiful Geena Davis returning as Stuart’s engaging mother.
On Sunday, the big screen features “Tomorrow Never Dies,” with Pierce Brosnan in the lead role as the suave and debonair James Bond. Brosnan returns from his successful debut as secret agent 007 in “GoldenEye.” He teams up with the lovely Michelle Yeoh, an agent with the Chinese External Security Force, and together, the duo lights up the big screen. “Tomorrow Never Dies” is an action-packed adventure film with lots of gadgetry, including a remote-controlled BMW, and grand-style action for the entire family. The film has been edited for family viewing.
Sunset on the Beach this weekend also features artisans offering “Made in Hawaii” products and crafts. The Craft Fair will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.
Whether you choose to picnic on the beach or dine on tables set up on the Kapahulu pier, choose from a wide menu selection – from pizzas and hot dogs to chefs’ signature plates at very special prices. Restaurants Royal Hawaiian Hot Dog, Bale French Sandwich and Restaurant, Moani’s Country Kitchen, The Nutty Hawaiian, Slush Puppie, East West BBQ, Mr. Pizza and Beach House Beverage Cart will offer their most popular samplings.
In addition to International Market Place, Sunset on the Beach is co-sponsored by the City and County of Honolulu, the Hawaii Restaurant Association, Waikiki Improvement Association, News 8, K5 The Home Team and FM 105 KINE radio.
