February 25, 2003


            Sunset on the Beach returns to Waikiki this weekend, Saturday, March 1, and Sunday, March 2, at Queen’s Surf Beach.  Relax and enjoy the sunshine and trade winds at Hawaii’s favorite food-movie-entertainment festival on the beach.

             The fun begins at 4 p.m. with food booths and music.  On Saturday, from 4 to 4:45 p.m., deejays from KCCN FM100 welcome groups Moana Chang and Aloha Boat Days to entertain.  Then from 5 to 6:45, dance to the hot salsa sounds of Son Caribe.    On Sunday Cox Radio kicks things off with the music of Pohaku from 4 to 4:45 p.m., and All Jammed Up from 5 to 6:45 p.m. 

             Full-length movies follow at 7:15 p.m. Saturday and 7:30 p.m. Sunday on the giant 30-foot screen.  On Saturday, it’s director George Lucas’ intergalactic thriller, “Star Wars, Episode II, Attack of the Clones,”  with Anakin Skywalker and Jedi Obi Wan Kenobi battling forces of good and evil, in breathtaking digital imagery.  Join the cast and characters of “Star Wars” at Sunset on the Beach’s “Star Wars” costume parade. 

              On Sunday, enjoy that delightful romantic comedy with Reese Witherspoon, Joshua Lucas and Candice Bergen,“Sweet Home Alabama.”  A successful New York fashion designer revisits her native Alabama, seeking a divorce from her estranged “redneck” husband so she can marry the  refined, sophisticated fiancé who awaits her return.  There’s a surprise ending and a lot of laughs throughout this light-hearted film that the entire family will enjoy.

                Whether you choose to dine casually on the beach or under blue umbrellas on the Kapahulu pier, a wide and tempting variety of items – from appetizers to delectable entrees – are offered by popular and friendly restaurants.  This weekend, Sunset on the Beach features Royal Hawaiian Hot Dog, The Nutty Hawaiian, New Century Restaurant, Leo’s Greek Taverna, Time 2 Grind, Express Foods, Bale French Sandwich & Restaurant, Popcorn Express and Pizza Hut.

Twenty-four artisans offering “Made in Hawaii” products are also a part of the festivities.   The Craft Fair opens from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. 

Sunset on the Beach is co-sponsored by the City and County of Honolulu, The Hawaii Restaurant Association, Waikiki Improvement Association, News 8, K5 The Home Team and KCCN FM 100.  For more information call 923-1094 or the City’s Information Office, 523-CITY.
