Paina in the Park:  May 22, 2016

With the inspiration of cultural leaders in our district, Councilmember Pine introduced her cultural markers law. Plans are in the works in cultural and community groups from Ewa, Kapolei and across the Waianae Coast to plan and install cultural markers to enhance our parks and educate our families of the significance of these beautiful city resources.

On May 22, 2016, residents came out to a free “Pa’ina in the Park” — an afternoon at Kapolei Regional Park designed to promote civic pride and connect residents with cultural entertainment from Kapolei. Musical entertainment was provided by the City’s own Royal Hawaiian Band. Bandmaster Clark Bright is committed to bringing the band out to Leeward O‘ahu for more concerts. The May 22nd event was the second concert on the Leeward Coast this year, followed by another event “Malama Kapolei” which took place July 9th at Kapolei Regional Park. Councilmember Pine is continuing to bring more cultural city-sponsored events to the Leeward Coast.

Together we can give our Second City a platform to proudly share the arts within our culturally-rich communities.
