Dole Plantation, home of Dole Whip, the Pineapple Garden Maze, the Pineapple Express, and the Plantation Garden, is hosting its annual Family Fun Day on Saturday, March 7th from 10AM to 2PM.  This free event features live musical performances, hula, arts and crafts, prize giveaways and more.

The Family Fun Day is well-known for the Central-area community groups and schools that join Dole Plantation as part of the “pineapple experience”. Students and teachers from area public schools will run keiki games, food booths and other activities at a nominal fee as fundraisers for their programs.

Free entertainment will be provided by the Wahiawa Middle School Jazz Band, Iliahi Elementary School Ukulele Club, Leilehua High School Polynesian Club and Wahiawa Hula Studio II, among others.

The March 7 event is also the only day of the year when all members of the public – kama‘aina, military and visitors – benefit from buy-one-get-one-free admissions to the World’s Largest Maze and Plantation Garden Tour. Dole Plantation also offers reduced admission to the Pineapple Express Train Tour: $6 for an adult and $4.75 for a child.

Kama‘aina also receive a 15 percent discount off of most retail merchandise in the Dole Plantation store.

Kanikapila at Surfer, The Bar

Young musician Irina Delatorre, excited to perform on stage during Kanikapila Night at Surfer, The Bar

The term “kanikapila” comes from the words “kani,” meaning “sound,” and “pila” which refers to any type of string instrument.  Traditionally, kanikapila refers to a style of music created when people get together for a jam session of sorts and often times mash up different pieces of music.  A great example of a song that is representative of this style is Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” which beautifully blends “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and “What a Wonderful World.”

Irina Delatorre, is one of many talented local singers that play at Turtle Bay’s Kanikapila Night at Surfer, The Bar.

 

Kanikapila has also come to refer to open mic nights at venues like Turtle Bay’s Surfer, The Bar.  Every Tuesday at Surfer, visitors and locals alike are invited to grab their instrument of choice (including simply their vocal chords) and hop on stage!  Even if you’re not brave enough to take the stage yourself, pull up a seat, get a cocktail, and enjoy the night.  The caliber of talent that graces the Kanikapila at Surfer, The Bar’s stage is something to behold.
