(Wed., June 15, 2011)—The wildly popular summer zoo concert series offers musical harmony along with the roars of tigers and howls of monkeys. Tonight's concert features Na Hoku Hanohano award winners Barrett & Tara Awai and later shows in the series will include local favorites Kelly Boy Delima, Manoa DNA, Ohta San, Melveen Leed, Jimmy Borges, Frank Delima and Ho'okena.


This series is sponsored by McDonald's Restaurants of Hawaii and the Honolulu Zoo Society and hosted by former City employee and ukulele master Roy Sakuma. The concerts are presented on the Zoo main stage every Wednesday from 6 to 7 p.m. Gates open at 4:35 p.m. with many options for fun and family entertainment. Visit the animals until the Zoo closes at 5:30 p.m. or enter the Ukulele Prize Drawing, made possible by Roy Sakuma and the following generous donors: Koaloha Ukulele, Kamaka Ukulele, Ko'olau / Pono Ukulele, Kanilea Ukulele, and Kala Ukulele. Every week an adult and keiki ukulele will be given away.  Other activities include a mini guided tour of the Zoo and the ever popular Keiki Koloring Kontest.


Attendees may take advantage of the tasty fare offered by the Zoo's concessionaire 'Taste of the Wild' catering or can bring their own picnic. Admission is $3 per person benefiting the Honolulu Zoo Society's conservation education programs.
