Greek Festival this weekend near our Waikiki Vacation Rentals in Honolulu
Posted by Unknown | Friday, August 22, 2014


This weekend there is a great family friendly event happening in Waikiki and it's just a short distance from all of our vacation rentals in Honolulu!  It's an event that supports the local community and it's an excellent way to taste handmade sweet treats and locally made foods.  It's the Greek Festival at McCoy Pavilion at Ala Moana Beach Park.

Admission is only $3.00 for adults and children 11 and under and active duty military are free.  Gates open at noon and close at 9:00 p.m. both Saturday August 23rd and Sunday August 24th.  The event is cash only but there will be ATM's on site. 

If you like pastries, the pastry shop sells all types of delicious treats and usually sells out before the end of the festival.  I usually get a box of assorted treats to take home before I leave.  They are handmade by the members of the Greek Orthodox church and taste like heaven!  There are all kinds of food booths and an air conditioned room with a buffet dinner where you can sit down out of the heat of the day.  Also there is a theater playing films about Greece that is in the air conditioning.

I just love the venue of McCoy Pavilion.  It has big shady trees and ponds full of Koi fish with benches around them to sit and enjoy the music while watching the fish in the shade of a tree.  Plus, if you get too hot you can just wear your swimsuit under your clothes and jump into the ocean since you are at Ala Moana Beach Park!  If you are staying at our vacation rentals at the Ala Moana Hotel #2726 then you are right across the street.  If you are at our units at the Ilikai Hotel, the Ilikai Marina, or the Waikiki Marina and the Discovery Bay #3510 then you are just a short walk away on the same street.  Otherwise, from our other units I suggest taking a cab or the city bus.  Parking is hard to come by on weekends at the park and a cab will be less than $12 from even our farthest units at the Cabana at Waikiki.  Bring your dancing shoes because there will be lots of live entertainment and Greek dancing! What a great way to have some fun while at our Waikiki vacation rentals in Honolulu!
