Arts & Culture reports from HPR's Noe Tanigawa
ShareThisMany O’ahu residents consider Kailua’s annual 4th of July celebration the highlight of the year. There’s a community parade in the morning, then the fireworks at night are a tradition dating back even before the first stoplight. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports on fundraising for what is usually a spectacular fireworks display.
ShareThisHave you noticed that Ward Avenue now runs across Ala Moana Boulevard past the old Fisherman’s Wharf, and loops into Kaka’ako Makai? HPR’s Noe Tanigawa continues a portrait of the area with a look at the new Kaka’ako Makai Community Cultural Marketplace. The Market is open Fridays 4:30 to 8pm and Saturdays 9 to 4pm. If you follow Ward Avenue all the way makai, you can't miss the tents.
ShareThis Honolulu’s district of Kaka’ako officially runs from Piikoi west to Punchbowl Street, between King street and Ala Moana Boulevard. Once dotted with fishponds and farms, it became the site of the Hawaiian Tuna Packers cannery, and a diverse but close knit community. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa spoke with old timers from the neighborhood for our occasional series of community portraits.
ShareThisThe Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project is dedicated to recovering Maui’s endangered forest birds. Just a few years ago, they were too late to prevent the demise of a beautiful species and are working to ensure that doesn’t happen again.
ShareThisEbb and Flow Arts based on Maui has consistently provided high quality, challenging music and art experiences. This Monday they begin a three island project with a concert at Marks Garage. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa has more. Ebb and Flow Arts presents “New Music From Korea” at Marks Garage Monday, June 20th at 7:30pm with a preconcert talk at 6:30.
