            In case you missed Waianae's Sunset on the Beach in March, the City and the Waianae community will again take the popular food-open market-entertainment-movie fest to the Maili Beach Park on Saturday and Sunday, August 10 and 11, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. 

 

            There's something for everyone – 16 local restaurants and eateries will offer a wide variety of menu items from chef's signature dishes to favorite local snacks at great prices.   They include SeaSide Café & Restaurant, Uncle Herb's Hot Malasadas, Waianae Store Deli, Sista's Ono Fried Ice Cream Company, Papa John's, Makaha Resort, Golden House Chop Suey, Onolicious Snack Shop, Tamura Supermarket, Ihilani Resort's Naupaka Restaurant, Moani's Country Kitchen, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and Woody's Hot Dog. 

 

The Open Market features fresh produce, unique Made-in-Waianae arts and crafts, demonstrations, services and children's activities.    A Health Fair will offer well being checks, information and tips from health care and social service providers.  Community performers and guest artists will take the entertainment stage on both days until 5:00 p.m. when radio stations KRATER 96 and KCCN FM-100 will feature their deejays, contests and popular local bands like Simplisity.

 

At 7:30 p.m., the huge 30-foot movie screen will come alive on Saturday with the magical, whimsical blockbuster "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" – complete with mesmerizing special effects that are sure to please all audiences.  On Sunday, it's back to the future with those giant ferocious dinosaurs in the action-packed thriller,  "Jurassic Park III."

 

            Free trolley service will begin at 9:30 a.m. on Farrington Highway with parking stops at Ma'ili Beach Park (Comfort Station #2), Ma'ili Beach Park (Comfort Station #4), Ma'ili Beach Park (Comfort Station #5, event site), Wai'anae Mall and the Nanakuli Butler Building.  Trolley service ends at 10:30 p.m. on both days. 

 

            Express buses will also be running from Waikiki to Waianae for the convenience of visitors and commuters.   From Waikiki, take Routes 8, 19, 20 and 42 to Ala Moana Center and transfer to the CountryExpress! (Route C) which departs every 30 minutes.  CountryExpress buses will run from 5:09 a.m. through 8:35 p.m. 

 

From Waianae, the CountryExpress! (Route C) will also run every 30 minutes back to Ala Moana.  The last regularly scheduled CountryExpress (Route C) departs Waianae at about 10:15 p.m.  There will be an extra run from Waianae to Waikiki between 10:30 to 10:45 after the event ends for those who missed the last scheduled ride into town.

 

            Waianae Coast Sunset on the Beach is the sixth in the series of Sunsets in O`ahu communities and is part of the city's "Discover Oahu" initiative to reinvigorate Hawaii's economy.   This is the second time the Waianae community has hosted Sunset on the Beach.  The first event, held in March, was a resounding success, bringing thousands of visitors and residents to the Waianae Coast.
