Hey Punahou74 classmates, it’s time for Carnival! Thanks to those of you who will be making the malasadas on Friday night. Just in case you haven’t been to Carnival for a while, here’s a review of what to expect and how to make it to your shift.
During what hours does Carnival run?
11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday, February 4 and Saturday, February 5, 2011.
What’s going on at Carnival?
Lots! This year’s “The Carnival Before Time: A Prehistoric Paradise” features ono food, jams & jellies (get there EARLY for these … especially if you want mango chutney), rides, games, a silent auction, art gallery, white elephant (toys, books, clothes, and household items), plants, a variety show and more!
(There’s also a Body Painting booth a.k.a. “Sabre Tooth Tatoos” where I will be stationed most of Carnival. Or try out my daughter’s booth at the “A Land Before Tofu” Ewa Hamburgers. It’s a family affair when you have a Punahou junior in the family!)
Of special interest to alumni is the Punahou Alumni Association’s booth with logo wear, the O’Men’s fruits and vegetables, and Pa’ani O Punahou’s flower booth.
Do I have to pay to attend?
No. Carnival admission is free with scrip sold for food and activities.
Where do I park?
Aye, there’s the rub. Limited free parking is available on campus (be there at the crack of dawn to get it or take your chances during the day), with paid parking sites at the Lutheran Church of Honolulu, Kapiolani Hospital, Central Union Church, Maryknoll High School, Punahou Fitness and Spa and St. Clement’s Episcopal Church.
So, where exactly is the Ewa Malasada Booth?
The map below is from 2010 but the Carnival layout doesn’t change much from year to year. The Ewa Malasada Booth sits Diamond Head of Montague Hall (MALA EWA on the map). It’s the one where Punahou74 will be working its infamous shift starting at 7:45 Friday night.
I have a question …
