News Release from Rep Corinne Ching (R-Liliha)

Honolulu - The 8th Annual "I LOVE LILIHA" Town Festival will proudly reconvene this year on Sunday, August 28 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Each year the ever-popular block party gathers business leaders, vendors, healthcare providers, entertainers and government agencies together, joining hands with community residents to celebrate the spirit and heritage of Liliha-Nuuanu. Over the day's course, last year's event gathered approximately five-thousand attendees from within Liliha and beyond. 

Sponsors such as Finance Factors, Liliha Bakery, and Longs Pharmacy have since 2004 allowed the Festival to offer free admission, which it will continue to provide this year. The Royal Hawaiian Band, annually delighting attendees with an hour's show to start the day, will perpetuate its traditional invocation once again. Other features in the past have included a Chinese lion dance, belly dancing, and a lively Emcee; this year's entertainment queue is also excited to welcome an oral historian who will recite tales of her experience growing up in the District.

"We are honored to have the sponsors we do to support the festival each year," says Representative Corinne W. L. Ching, "'I LOVE LILIHA' is nothing if not individual gems of the community arriving at one place and time, to remind residents why they should be proud to call Liliha home."

The event features fresh local produce, plant and flower sales, handmade arts and crafts from local artisans, live entertainment, a "KeikiFun Zone" bounce house, health information and screenings, representatives from community organizations such as the FBI, Hawaii State Civil Defense and Neighborhood Boards, plus A Taste of Liliha”featuring food sampling from Liliha neighborhood restaurants. Antique fire truck rides also highlight the experience each year for many.

 The annual town festival offers a venue to showcase the many reasons one may rightly exclaim "I love Liliha!" Bring your beach umbrellas, mats & chairs, and spend the day! Free parking is also available.
