Kick off the weekend with a seaside concert series at the Waikiki Aquarium. Gather on the lawn, nosh on signature menu offerings from local restaurants and enjoy Hawaiian music under the stars. This popular series is held each summer on the lawn at the Aquarium, making it a hot ticket. Proceeds from this series will benefit the expansion of the aquarium’s Kane’ohe Bay exhibit. “Our annual concert series allows guests to experience a relaxing summer evening atmosphere next to the ocean while listening to an array of local musical performers and enjoying delicious food,” says Director Andrew Rossiter, Ph.D. “One of my favorite things about the concerts is seeing so many familiar faces return year after year.”
Performers are John Cruz and Nathan Aweau on June 13, KUmZ and Manu Boyd on June 27, Mark Yamanaka and Darren Benitez on July 11, Amy Hanaiali’i and Hi’iuka on July 25, and Makaha Sons on August 8. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., performances begin at 7 p.m. (808) 923-9741. www.waquarium.org.
