Well last night's pah-tay was...... GOOD FUN!
But pics and mo'olelo's will be posted tomorrow (hopefully) so stay tuned.
In case you didn't know, there's the Honolulu Family Festival at Magic Island starting tonight and running through da weekend:
Thursday, July 30 - 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Friday, July 31 - 5 p.m. to midnight
Saturday, August 1 - 10 a.m. to midnight
Sunday, August 2 - 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
(click da link above for more info)
I haven't been to one at Magic Island yet but it must be pretty trippy to have something li'dat on an "island". If you've lived on Oahu long enough, you'd have to have at least gone to some kine of fair or carnival whether it be da 50th State Fair, Farm Fair, McKinley Carnival, Punahou Carnival, Iolani Family Fair.... da list goes on.
But all those fairs/carnivals truly miss one thing, real ambiance.
Can you imagine taking taking a date to watch a gorgeous sunset and then go ride some rides and eat carnival food all within footsteps of each oddah? I dunno about you but dat sounds like a plan! Or maybe enjoying all da grinds and then taking a moonlit stroll hand in hand? I can imagine wat da view must look like from on top da ferris wheel. Ooooh la-la.
I tink it's a great idea dat came out of da Mayor's office and I hope it continues. There's no admission to get in, parking is FREE (good luck finding some although da City does provide a FREE shuttle), you can just go for grind and/or ride rides while listening to da smooth rhythmic sounds of rolling waves.
Do you tink da Honolulu Family Festival at Magic Island is a good idea?
Come share your mo'olelo's about your fondest memories of da fair - good or bad and let's play a game while we at it. Besides sharing your memories, post your favorite things about da fair dat's a must. For example, Ride da Zipper, Corn on da cob, etc.
For your efforts, Post #54 and #77 wins a two-pack of unlimited ride passes valid on:
Thursday, July 30 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
