SUNSET ON THE BEACH  

            Sunset on the Beach is the place to be this weekend as the City celebrates the Cherry Blossom Festival and Japanese Heritage Fair on Saturday, February 16, and President’s Day on Sunday, February 17.  Sunset on the Beach is held at Queen’s Surf Beach from 4 to 9 p.m. on both days.

            One of the most innovative programs in Hawaii, Sunset gives local residents and visitors an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Hawaiian sunset from world-famous Waikiki beach.  It’s a great way to relax with a cool beverage, pupus, and live entertainment from 4 to 6 p.m.  This weekend, radio stations KQMQ and KORL will feature talented artist and songwriter Mehana Souza and Jook Joint on Saturday, and Planet Jane on Sunday.  Radio station deejays will also engage the audience in interesting contests with fun prizes. 

To celebrate the Japanese Heritage Fair, on Saturday, February 9,  a Japanese short film will be shown on the huge 30-foot screen prior to the star-studded “Star Wars: Episode VI-Return of the Jedi.” On Sunday, February 10, enjoy “The American President,” with Michael Douglas as President Andrew Shepherd and directed by Rob Reiner.           

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 hamburgers and hot dogs to chefs’ signature plates at very special prices.   Restaurants Yoshiya, Davey Jones Ribs, Furusato, Seafood Village, Royal Hawaiian Hot Dog, Pizza Hut, Ghirardelli Ice Cream, Popcorn Express, and Beach House Beverage Cart will feature their finest.           

            This week, Sunset on the Beach is sponsored by the City & County of Honolulu, the Honolulu Japanese Junior Chamber of Commerce, Hawaii Restaurant Association, Waikiki Improvement Association, News 8, K5 The Home Team, and KQMQ and KORL.
