Ala Moana Beach Park provides the perfect backdrop for a fun-filled day. Activity booths put on by Scouts and community partners incorporate Scout and STEM science activities like bottle rockets, rope bridges and a Kid Zone. There will be ono food with many food truck vendors from Eat the Street, outdoor displays and military vehicles to explore and climb.

Lanai Tabura will be the emcee announcing a line-up of entertainment acts as well as holding contests and prizes throughout the day.
