Under the Stars
Kick off the weekend with “Ke Kani O Ke Kai,” 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 Waikiki Aquarium. “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.” Another plus: Aquarium galleries and exhibits will remain open throughout the evening.
Performers are Ho‘okena and Ben & Malia on June 12, HAPA and Cyril Pahinui on June 26, Natalie Ai Kamauu and Mark Yamanaka on July 10, Weldon Kekauoha and Melveen Leed on July 24, and Kuana Torres Kahele and Makana on August 7. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., performances begin at 7 p.m. For more information, go to www.waquarium.org.
