The celebration wants to act as a catalyst for improving Kalihi's economic base as Kalihi-based companies, small businesses, and community organizations participate in this festival which will feature food, drinks, a bit of history, family-friendly activities and all around entertainment. A portion of the net proceeds will benefit the Kalihi-Palama Health Center whose ission is to provide quality, integrated health and social services to our community and all others in need of health care.
