‘Cool’ Block Party Time Saturday In Kailua Town

Combining a street festival and health awareness fair in the Whole Foods Market parking lot in Kailua Town Center, Cool Kailua Nights is something the whole family can enjoy from 4 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday.

Windward’s own Kapena will entertain at the fourth annual block party; also planned are fashion shows (human and canine), keiki rides, wine and beer sampling, food, games, a dunking tank and prizes. Lemonade Alley entrepreneurs will ply the crowds with their lemonade drinks throughout the evening.

Windward Artist Guild will have freshly created plein-air paintings on view and for sale, and more than 35 local shops and restaurants also will participate.

Proceeds go to Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii Windward Clubhouse, as well as Castle Medical Center’s Oncology Clinic in honor of event founder Danielle Scherman’s mother, who is a breast cancer survivor.

“Kaneohe Ranch is proud to be one of many sponsors,” said executive vice president and COO Kimo Steinwascher. “Our Kailua Town Center (Phase III) is fully occupied and is the ideal gathering place for this block party. It’s also great to see so many businesses donating their time, energy and products to such a good cause.” For details, visit
