Punahou invites public to attend annual carnival for weekend of fun

Punahou Carnival on Sunrise (7:30a)

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The public is invited to attend the annual Punahou Carnival on Friday, Feb. 6 and Saturday, Feb. 7. Celebrating this year's theme, "Island Style: Carnival No Ka Oi," attendees can once again enjoy fun rides, games, a White Elephant and more than 60 booths – ranging from malasadas to mango chutney and haku lei.

The event – in which admission is free -- will also feature live music from the sounds of Henry Kapono, Pomaikai Lyman and Maunalua. Attendees can also enjoy a new ride called Area 51.

Admission to the carnival is free and scrip will be available for purchase throughout the midway.

Parking is available on campus on a first-come, first-served basis. Additional parking is available in the surrounding neighborhood at Central Union Church, St. Clement's Church, the Lutheran Church of Honolulu and Maryknoll School.

The annual two-day fundraiser helps support the nearly 600 students at Punahou School who benefit from its need-based financial aid program. It's a tradition that dates back to 1932.

Hawaii News Now's Jennifer Robbins and Ramsay Wharton went to Punahou to get a special sneak peek of the weekend's festivities.
