Festivities include entertainment, a marketplace featuring local crafts and artists, a health expo sponsored by the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center and a children’s center with rides, games and prizes. At dusk, a full-length feature movie will be shown.

And of course, there will be lots of "ono-licious" food from a variety of local restaurants and food vendors.
