Slide into the Summer at New Wave Friday
This summer, we’re all about embracing the ebb and flow of the season. Whatever life throws at us, we’re going to slide right through it. Passing showers got you stranded without an umbrella? Duck under a canopy tree for a moment and feel the temperature drop just a few degrees as the rain passes. Waves too small to surf your new shortboard? Grab a snorkel, mask, and fins and explore the reef under your favorite surf break. Life in Hawai‘i is always about stopping to smell the flowers and taking advantage of impromptu opportunities as they arise. When Mother Nature picks up your itinerary and blows it out the window with a gust of the trades, stay positive, go with the flow, and slide into your next adventure.
With that in mind, we’re pleased to announce a very special Summer Slide New Wave Friday. Composed of an evening of live music, food, drinks, and plenty of fun for the keiki, you won’t want to miss this summer kick-off event going down this Friday, June 15. Free and open to the public, your window of opportunity opens when you RSVP and check-in at the event to receive a free Summer Slide drink tumbler. From there, just go with the flow, have fun, and embrace all that Ward Village and the summer season has to offer.
Hawai‘i all-star musicians and performers Paula Fuga & Kawika Kahiapo, Mana‘o Company, and Kapena will be strumming the strings and hitting the high notes all night to keep the vibe uplifting and jamming, Hawai‘i style. Watch comic book artist Cheyne Gallarde paint a 2020 Toyota Corolla with his animated, colorful and bold artwork. Or chillax on a bean bag chair in front of our mega LED movie screen for three beautiful short films on ocean sustainability and the aloha lifestyle: Three Hearts Home, Anointed, and True Hawaii.
Slide into action and get hands-on at The Summer Slide’s Sustainability Zone to learn more about our beautiful oceans and how we can keep them healthy and thriving for generations to come. You won’t need the stars to find your way to the rope workshop and navigation demos hosted by the Polynesian Voyaging Society. Do you part to lessen your footprint and check out the recycling activity by Zero Waste Hawaii and chance ‘em to win free prizes from Taste Tea, or peruse the art made with ocean materials inside Ward Centre, curated by Three for the Sea. And since energetic keiki have no problem sliding from one thing to the next, explore the ocean-themed activities by Art Explorium and Kīpuka at South Shore Market. Don’t get stuck in a rut, shop at Ward Village retail vendors and have fun navigating the night, wherever opportunity takes you.
RSVP now for New Wave Friday’s Summer Slide! Check-in at the event to receive a free insulated drink tumbler (quantities are limited, so arrive early!). RSVP check-in will be located at Ward Centre near Bed, Bath & Beyond.
