BY MONICA SALTER — Themed “Cultural Harmony, Journey to Peace,” the 23nd annual Honolulu Festival kick-off took place at Waikiki Beach Walk® Feb. 28. Outrigger is delighted to continue our support by hosting a portion of the Festival’s music and cultural activities at Waikiki Beach Walk® where visitors and local residents can enjoy the synergy and excitement of live performances.

This year’s Festival is expected to bring in more than 5,000 visitors and generate millions of dollars for the state.

The Honolulu Festival Foundation supports educational and cultural programs for the benefit of Hawai‘i’s school children and the community-at-large through public outreach and charitable efforts. It is for these reasons and more that we proudly support this annual cultural showcase.

Mahalo to the Honolulu Festival for showcasing our destination and for allowing Outrigger and Waikiki Beach Walk® to be a part of the Honolulu Festival.
