A “SCREECHIN’ GOOD TIME” AT SUNSET ON THE BEACH

            Sunset on the Beach, the city’s movie-entertainment-food festival on Queen’s Surf Beach in Waikiki, continues this weekend, Saturday, October 25 and Sunday, October 26, adding a unique Halloween Costume Contest to its extensive menu.   

             At 6:45 p.m. Saturday, a costume contest for children four to 10 years will be held, with prizes given to the “Most Creative” and “Most Authentic” costumes.   

              The contest will precede the Saturday evening movie, “ET:  The Extra-Terrestrial.”  This 1982 classic has been re-released with additional scenes and special effects and stars a young Drew Barrymore, joined by Dee Wallace and Henry Thomas.  On the city’s 30-foot screen, the audience will be thrilled with the special effects of this Steven Spielberg blockbuster.

             On Sunday, the feature film is “Young Frankenstein,” another classic Halloween film.  Directed by Mel Brooks and starring Gene Wilder, Cloris Leachman, Teri Garr and Marty Feldman, this gentle parody of the original Frankenstein classic is funny with cleverly situated double entendres.  It’s a treat from beginning to end.

                Sunset on the Beach begins at 4 p.m., with live entertainment hosted by engaging radio station deejays.  On Saturday, 1043 XME presents “Hot Rain.”  On Sunday, KCCN FM100 hosts “SUGahDADDY” and “Stacie.” 

 Participating restaurants this weekend include the Royal Hawaiian Hot Dog & Shave Ice, Sweet Street Deserts/Chocolate Fountain Hawaii/Paradise Water Ice, Belly Ups, Leo’s Traverna, Olivineo’s Italian Restaurant, Time 2 Grind, Bale Sandwich & Restaurant, Popcorn Express and Pizza Hut. 

             Thirty-two artisans offering “Made in Hawaii” products complete the city’s most popular entertainment and food celebration on the beach. The craft fair begins at 9 a.m. and is open until 9 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.

             Sunset on the Beach is sponsored by the City and County of Honolulu, Hawaii Restaurant Association, Hawaii Tourism Authority, News 8, K5 The Home Team, 1043 XME and KCCN FM100.   For more information contact 523-CITY.
