SUNSET ON THE BEACH

 

            You don’t want to miss Sunset on the Beach this weekend, Saturday, June 15 and Sunday (Father’s Day), June 16 at Queen’s Surf Beach.  The city’s weekly music-movie-food fest will be hosting a mini craft fair, adding to the color and excitement of the popular event.  Organized by the Handcrafters and Artisans Alliance, 32 crafters will proudly display their best in four tents along the makai side of Kalakaua Avenue from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

 

Also on Saturday, visitors to Waikiki will be treated to the Filipino Fiesta Mabuhay Festival and Parade down Kalakaua Avenue to the Kapiolani Bandstand.  Keiki will have an added bonus with a clip from Disney’s new movie, “Leo & Stitch,” planned to be shown on the big screen before Saturday’s featured film.

 

Whether you choose to picnic on the beach or dine at tables with bright blue umbrellas  on the Kapahulu pier, select from a wide menu assortment – from chefs’ signature presentations to pizzas, hot dogs and snacks – at very special prices.   Some of Honolulu’s finest restaurants participating this weekend include Royal Hawaiian Hot Dog, Nutty Hawaiian, Ted’s Bigger Burgers, Seafood Village, Simply Ono Popcorn, Davey Jones Ribs, Sweet Street Desserts, Parrot Ice, Mr. Pizza and Beach House Carts.  Restaurants begin serving from 4 p.m. as recorded Hawaiian music is played.

 

At 4:30 p.m. live entertainment begins, presented this week by Oldies 107.9 on Saurday and KCCN 1420 AM on Sunday.  The stations’ talented deejays will engage the audience with contests, prizes, laughter and merriment.  

 

Movies begin at 7 p.m. on the 30-foot screen with picturesque Diamond Head in the backdrop.  On Saturday, watch Walt Disney’s heartwarming story of Mowgli, a child reared by wild animals who’s at home in the jungle.  Written by children’s author Rudyard Kipling, “The Jungle Book” is sure to entertain the entire family.  On Sunday, it’s the hilarious romantic comedy, “Dave,” starring Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver.

           

            This week, Sunset on the Beach is sponsored by the City & County of Honolulu, Hawaii Restaurant Association, Waikiki Improvement Association, KHNL News 8, K5 The Home Team, and radio stations KCCN and Oldies 107.9.
