When the sun descends past the horizon, participants will strap on their headlamps and embark on a 5K run under a glowing moon. The race trail follows the scenic, coastal terrain, and all participants receive a headlamp. Post-race, runners enjoy live music, carnival rides, Santa photo booth, and giveaways while partaking in food and drinks. The friendly competition continues at the after-party, where organizers bestow awards to runners with the best costumes.
Across more than 14,000 square feet of space, spring-loaded frames add extra bounce to trampolines that stretch out in every direction. During open bounce, visitors flip, jump, and dive into foam pits, or join a game of dodgeball made extra exciting by the element of bounciness. Parents who don't want to join the wall-to-wall trampoline fun can relax in the lounge area and catch up on the news over free WiFi. To celebrate big events, iTrampoline Hawaii offers parties for groups that include pizzas, drinks, and the facility's blessing to party down.
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 University of Hawaii’s tagline is “Like No Place Else on Earth.” Visitors would agree that they’re truly as unique a learning institution as they claim to be. Established in 1907, the University of Hawaii is a public school that has campuses on the six major islands of the state. Notable alumni of this school include Barack Obama Sr. and S. Ann Dunham, the father and mother of the president respectively. Some of their most renowned departments include their Life Sciences Department and their Anthropology department, both of which featured leading names in the field at several points, such as Nobel Prize Laureate Georg von Bekesy.
Four professional soccer teams from three continents battle for international soccer supremacy during the inaugural Hawaiian Islands Invitational. During the tournament's opening game, Korea's Busan I'Park attempts to corral the dangerous midfield of Melbourne Heart FC, led by former MLS standout and Brazil native Fred, who staggers defenses with prolific playmaking and sparklers attached to his cleats. Thursday's second matchup between Yokohama FC and 2010 MLS champion Colorado Rapids entices uproarious chants from the crowd as legendary Japanese striker Kazuyoshi "Kazu" Miura vaults headers into the airspace of American goalie Matt Pickens. On Saturday, the first-round victors will face off for bragging rights as tournament champions, and the consolation game awards third-place finishers and sentences losers to a year of peeling potatoes and freshly picked soccer balls.
