HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - After a long pandemic hiatus, Punahou Carnival is back in full swing this weekend.

Due to weather conditions, the carnival has pushed the opening back one hour for Saturday. The carnival will be open from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m.

The school is hoping for a big turnout this year to support it’s financial aid program.

This year’s theme is “Pun Prix ‘23: Pedal to the Metal.”

Fresh malasadas, mango chutney, kiddie games and rides, Art Gallery, Silent Auction, White Elephant treasures and live musical entertainment are among the many draws for the Carnival, which dates back to 1932.

Sponsored by Punahou’s current juniors, the Class of 2024.

More than 4,500 people volunteer for the Punahou Carnival, including faculty, staff, parents and alumni.

There is limited parking on campus, available on a first-come, first-served basis. Paid parking options available in the surrounding neighborhood.
