Honolulu Night Market and Our Kaka‘ako recently kicked off this year’s POW! WOW! Hawaiʻi with a block party. Attendees celebrated a night of culture and art with live music, pop-up shops, a fashion show, and food trucks. Located on Auahi and Keawe streets in the innovative urban neighborhood of Our Kakaʻako, Honolulu Night Market commemorated the start of a week of creativity.
Local and international artists congregated to create murals and art installations throughout Our Kakaʻako. Kamehameha Schools provided the canvas for these large-scale paintings which have become popular among visitors and locals.
Many have already started to flock to Our Kakaʻako to view and photograph the new works of art. Through their partnership, Kamehameha Schools and POW! WOW! Hawaiʻi have encouraged the community to appreciate the surrounding art and culture that is unique to Hawaiʻi.
