It’s finally here. Time to clue you all in on how to make your Punahou74 Carnival Day 2017 be an unreal experience.
First thing: Get to Carnival. Check out this post for Everything you Need to Know about the 2017 Punahou Carnival for information about parking, prices, white elephant, and most importantly, a map of the carnival grounds. Because …
Second thing: Head on over to the Ewa Malasadas tent to get your hands doughy. Punahou74 will be working The Ultimate Malasada Sugar Rush there from 4:45-8:00 p.m.
Third thing: Be ready for the shift. You have to pass Board of Health muster so
- Wear covered shoes
- Wear shirts with sleeves
- Wear baseball caps (no visors) or grab a paper hat in the booth
- Wear an apron or grab an apron in the booth
Fourth thing: Have some scrip in your pocket when you check in for your shift. You may order up to six (6) malasadas (cost = 6 scrip) to take home with you afterwards. Mind you these won’t be the warmest malasadas but, then again, you won’t have to stand in line to get them. The Carnival maxim is ever true: Hot malasadas come to he who waits.
Fifth thing: Head on over the the Punahou74 After Party when the shift is pau to wind down and enjoy a mini reunion with Punahou74 classmates, family, and friends. Click here for more information.
If you want to enjoy a Hawaiian Plate dinner at the party, bring $10 in scrip or cash when you check in for your Punahou74 malasada shift and we will have someone head on over the to cafeteria to purchase and bring your dinner to the party. Remember, that’s $10 in scrip or cash.
Sixth thing: Enjoy the Punahou Carnival 2017. It’ll be a real kick! Plenty of people including many classmates and Punahou alumni will be there.
Last thing: Mark your calendars for Friday, February 2, 2018 when we will be rewinding the time and enjoying this same exercise next year. Pending any change, plan on same time, same place for the Punahou74 Carnival shift. (And you’ll hear it here first if there’s a change to that plan.) It’ll be the 60th anniversary of the first malasada shift (corn and malasada shift, actually) so who knows what the malasada fairy will have in store for us all. After all, it’s Punahou74 FOREVER and TOGETHER!
