Waimanalo Keiki Water Festival October 8

 

      The City’s Storm Water Quality Branch of the Department of Environmental Services is co-sponsoring the third annual Keiki Water Festival in Waimanalo on Wednesday, October 8.  The event is free to the public and runs from 8:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. at the Waimanalo Elementary and Intermediate School.
