'Third Fridays Kaimuki'

KAIMUKI (HawaiiNewsNow) - The community is invited to a big party in Kaimuki Friday night.

The event is called "Third Fridays Kaimuki".

Stores and shops on Waialae Avenue, between 8th and Koko Head Avenue, will be providing entertainment, food, and art displays.

The goal is to showcase the offerings of the Kaimuki neighborhood in a fun, family-friendly event.

"We really want it to be a community event celebrating art and culture, and so that local residents, even people who can walk. There's so many residential areas, just walk down, have some dinner, check out the local businesses. They can bring their kids, there's not going to be any rowdy drunkenness", said co-organizer Maya Siklai.

It all happens Friday night on Waialae Avenue from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Admission is free, so head down there and check it out.
