Typically, yoga studios feature glossy wood floors and big windows that let in plenty of natural light. However, at Salt Yoga in Waikiki, the setting is anything but typical: the big windows are instead the wide-open sky, the hardwood floors the gentle waters of a cove. Even the mats are different; instead of standing atop flat beds of foam, yogis balance on specially designed standup paddleboards that float on the surface. Led by certified yoga teacher Peter Jacobsen, students paddle out to the designated spot before executing carefully planned routines while safely anchored in flat water.
Sometimes a party needs an extra element—perhaps the bucking and spinning of a mechanical bull, themed decorations, or a DJ to spin tunes over the dance floor. The Hawaii Party Rentals offers all these ingredients and more. They can amp up festivities with speakers and even supply the live band. To fulfill fantastical themes such as "Winter Wonderland," the store can even make it snow. For a little competition, ask The Hawaii Party Rentals to lay out race tracks or inflatable sumo wrestling mats. Whatever the celebration, they work closely with clients, customizing events down to the last detail.

The second-annual Pumpkin Carving Festival allows families to enjoy a quintessential fall tradition while aiding local and national charities. Held at the spacious Neal S. Blaisdell Center, the event that attracted more than 1,100 attendees last year will again seat families of eager squash whittlers near each other for the festive occasion. During a two-hour carving session, groups of up to eight people bring their jack-o’-lanterns to life utilizing scoopers, pairing knives, stencils, and suggestions culled from the cryogenically frozen brain of Dr. Frankenstein. This year's Pumpkin Carving Festival's proceeds will benefit the ongoing community-building efforts of Hawaii Children's Discovery Center and the Keiki O Ka Aina Family Learning Centers, who use Hawaiian culture to strengthen familial bonds and literacy.
