2015 Mōʻiliʻili Summer Fest

July 7, 2015

Honolulu's largest bon dance took place on Friday, July 3, at the old Varsity Theatre parking lot on Kamehameha Schools land. The annual festival featured great entertainment, local food, retail pop-ups and cultural activities for the keiki.

The KS Communications Group staffed Kamehameha's tent which featured three farmers: Native Hawaiian Māmaki Tea, Otsuji Farm and Holoholo General Store (2014 first place Mahiʻai Match-Up winner). Attendees were invited to spin the KS prize wheel while the communications team shared about KS' Strategic Agricultural Plan.
