SUNSET ON THE BEACH RETURNS TO WAIKIKI

             After taking a weekend off, Sunset on the Beach continues in Waikiki this Saturday, November 30 and Sunday, December 1.

             Make it a Thanksgiving weekend to remember.  Enjoy the most beautiful sunsets in the world, great entertainment concert style, great food at reasonable prices, and free movies on a huge 30-foot screen.  Sunset on the Beach returns to Queen’s Surf Beach on both days at 4 p.m. with concerts and food stations.

             Radio station Hawaiian 105 KINE kicks off with “Coconut Joe” and the spirited International Promotion Group from the “Polynesian Cultural Center” on Saturday.  Whether it’s a Hawaiian hula, a Tahitian aparima, or the fastest Samoan coconut tree climber you’ll ever see doing the siva 70 feet above, you will enjoy a first-class presentation by the group that has performed throughout the world.  On Sunday, KCCN FM-100 will have you rocking to the sounds of “B.E.T” and “Hot Rain” while their deejays engage guests with contests and prizes.

             This weekend, Sunset on the Beach hosts 24 artists from the Hawaii Handcrafters and Artists Alliance, offering “Made in Hawaii” products.  Complete your Christmas shopping in a relaxing and enjoyable environment by visiting this unique Craft Fair.

             Blockbuster movies begin at 6:30 p.m.  On Saturday, it’s Michael J. Fox, who travels back in time, in “Back to the Future.”  A delightful action-comedy, this 1985 hit featured Michael J. Fox at his best, and inspired a sequel with Fox again in the starring role.  “Back to the Future” finds Marty (Fox) transported to his hometown thirty years before, where he uncovers the courtship between his parents, and participates in preserving his own future. 

             On Sunday, enjoy the tongue-in-cheek action-comedy, “Men In Black II.”  This action-comedy-science fiction is a sequel to the 1977 hit, based on the Marvel Comics about agents who protect Earth from extraterrestrial aliens who live here.  It stars Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones and Lara Flynn Boyle.  Both films are Steven Spielberg productions.

            Whether you choose to dine on the pier under blue umbrellas or casually picnic on the sandy white beach, choose from a variety of delicious entrees and snacks.  The BBQ Baby Back Ribs with Rice, Cole Slaw and Beans ($7.00) from Dixie Grill, Lau Lau Plate served with Rice, Lomi Salmon and Haupia ($6.00) by Moani’s Country Kitchen, and Vietnamese Chicken Sandwich on Croissant ($5.00) or spring rolls from BA-Le French Sandwich & Restaurant are among popular Sunset on the Beach menu items.  Other restaurants participating this weekend include Catalina Italiano Restorante, Royal Hawaiian Hot Dog, Simply Ono Popcorn, Mr. Pizza and Beach House Beverage Cart.

Mayor Jeremy Harris and the City and County of Honolulu, Waikiki Improvement Association, Hawaii Restaurant Association, News 8-NBC Hawaii, K5 The Home Team, Hawaiian 105 KINE and KCCN FM-100 co-sponsor this weekend’s Sunset on the Beach.
