The Paliku Arts Festival attracted four times the expected number of
visitors when it kicked off last year. Many families stayed the entire
day, drawn in by the welcoming atmosphere and hands-on activities. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports on what will be in store this Saturday.
Paliku Arts Festival runs from 10am to 6pm tomorrow, Saturday, March
31st, at Windward Community College. Activities are free, the
Imaginarium is open for a nominal fee, and there’s plenty of parking.
The festival’s emphasis is on "doing" art, not just seeing it. Windward
CC art professors, instructors and their students will be on hand with
supplies and assistance to those who want to try painting, drawing,
and sculpting to moving, acting or making music, prints, masks, poetry
and prose. Community groups such as the Honolulu Printmakers will also
be leading hands-on activities.

Palikū Theatre will feature a free performance of "How I Became a Pirate," a musical version of the popular children’s book.
