The first annual Nonstop Kaka‘ako takes place on Saturday, Oct. 22, from 4 to 10 p.m. along Coral, Keawe and Auahi streets, which are being closed for the event. (Free parking is available at 555 South St.)
The event, which helps commemorate the first anniversary of Nonstop Honolulu, will feature entertainment on two stages by Anuhea, Yoza, Lost at Sea and Kainalu. There will also be a Women’s Lounge, with a beauty bar, sweets bar, martini and champagne bar and a DJ. The Man’s Cave features live UH Warrior football on a huge inflatable screen and a cigar bar thrown by Lanai Tabura.
In addition, we’ll have pop-up retail boutiques and food booths, with nominees from Nonstop Honolulu’s Best of Nonstop contest, as well as street food from Eat the Street vendors.
Other highlights: a beer garden, outdoor arcade, rock climbing, dart boards, a basketball arcade and a C4 Waterman virtual standup paddle game.
The collaborative block party is being thrown by Kamehameha Schools, Nonstop Honolulu, Streetgrindz.com and Say I Do by Karisa. Honolulu-based designer Lauren Makk, who has appeared on TLC’s “Trading Spaces,” is serving as the event designer. The Booth Hawaii also will be at the event, running a photo booth.
So be sure to save the date, Oct. 22, and come join us for this huge, fun party.
