Arts & Culture reports from HPR's Noe Tanigawa
ShareThisThe oldest islands in the Hawaiian chain stretch northward spanning an area three times greater than the main inhabited islands. Low atolls and the tips of undersea pinnacles dot the expanse where more than 90% of Hawai’i’s green sea turtles breed and nest.
ShareThis Across the nation, farmers’ markets grew by 17% in the past year as a testament to freshness, flavor, and the family farm. Markets are still growing on O’ahu too, where HPR’s Noe Tanigawa took a colorful visit to the 2 year old Hale’iwa farmers’ market. Check www.haleiwafarmersmarket.com for updates on that North Shore market, featuring a special Tropical Flower Festival August 28th.
ShareThisAt 7:30 on any weekday morning, while many of us are caught in lines of traffic, waves are breaking off Waikiki luring the lucky into the water.
ShareThis Today is the first Friday in August and First Friday celebrations are gearing up for end-of-summer energy. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa offers a sampling of sights and sounds. First Friday festivities are free and run from 5pm until about 10 tonight in Chinatown, Honolulu. Parking is always cheap & plentiful at Marks Garage ($5 flat rate) and the huge lot at Kukui Plaza, behind the Pali Longs.
ShareThisThis summer’s best local read is Alexei Melnick’s Tweakerville: Life and Death in Hawai’i’s Ice World. Melnick won this year’s Cades Literature award for emerging authors and spoke with HPR’s Noe Tanigawa about the book that has Hawai’i taking a second look at itself. Alexei Melnick’s Tweakerville: Life and Death in Hawai’i’s Ice World was published by Mutual Publishing in 2010.
