ARA Fair Is A Good Family Fit

American Renaissance Academy’s Fall Festival and Craft Fair was so successful last year, that organizers are bringing it back bigger and better this year.

“Last year we had a really good turnout,” said director of marketing and communications Elaine Peters. “We want to promote school spirit and engage the community and let them know we’re still back here.”

The second annual event takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday at the campus, located at 91-1011 Lexington St. in Kapolei.

In addition to a craft fair, the public can look forward to a number of food vendors, vintage items, community information booths, games and activity stations.

New York Life will be on hand to make keiki IDs, and Naval Air Museum Barbers Point will display a helicopter, fire engine and cockpit (to name a few).

Children in particular will enjoy the water slides (three in total) and bouncers.

Live music performances will feature Hawaii Youth Challenge Academy, Hula Halau O Kehaulani, Kaui, ARA’s School for the Performing Arts and The Tigers From Niger.

Admission to the festival is free; scrip and all-access wristbands are for rides and games, and vendors will require cash.

All-access wristbands cost $20 in advance and $25 on Saturday.
