Drive-through “Poke Fest” on Saturday in Kapolei

Frolic Hawaii’s 4th Annual Poke Fest, presented by Fresh Island Fish, will be held on Saturday, May 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Ka Makana Ali‘i.

The event is sold out.

For one day only, poke from the island’s favorite shops come together for a zero-contact, drive-through event in the Center’s parking lot near Macy’s. Lucky Poke Fest participants can enjoy their poke boxes at tables in the Food Market and around the Center.

Also on Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Ka Makana Ali‘i is also hosting a Paniolo Hawai‘i Clothing pop-up and socially distant meet-and-greet with former University of Hawai’i football player, actor and clothing designer Brad Kalilimoku.

Kalilimoku recently drew a lot of attention for his noteworthy role in the Netflix hit film “Finding ‘Ohana.” The community is invited to meet the Honolulu native and celebrate the launch of his two new apparel lines. Paniolo, the first of Kalilimoku’s two clothing lines, is a tribute to his own lifestyle and keeping the Paniolo traditions and culture alive. The second apparel line is activewear inspired by one of Hawai’i’s great warriors Kekūhaupiʻo, who was known as a master of ʻōlohe lua.

Throughout the weekend, participating retailers at the center for West O‘ahu are popping out for exclusive sidewalk sales, and a weekend-long savings pass. More than 30 of the Center’s eateries and retailers have created special offers for the exclusive Memorial Day weekend savings pass, available in this week’s MidWeek and to Ka Makana Ali‘i Royal insiders.

Additionally, families can take Instagram-worthy photos at various selfie stations throughout the open-air center.

The community is invited to participate in a social media contest for a chance to win a shopping spree at Ka Makana Ali‘i. Post photos taken at the Center during Poke Fest and Memorial Day weekend on Instagram and Facebook, tag @kamakanaalii and use #kamakanaalii. The Center will choose a random winner on Tuesday, June 1.
