Public invited to honor Fasi
The public will get to pay tribute to former Mayor Frank Fasi in the Honolulu Hale courtyard Wednesday.
Only family and invited guests will be allowed inside the courtyard during the actual service from 10 to 11 a.m., although television monitors will be located outside City Hall for the public's viewing.
The public is being allowed inside Honolulu Hale from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. to pay respect to Fasi's family. Entry will be through the main doors into Honolulu Hale on South King Street.
City officials are warning that parking may be an issue if a large crowd shows up. Limited public parking will be available at the Alapa'i Transit Station, but only from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Parking is also available at metered parking stalls along Punchbowl, South King, Kawaiaha'o, South and Richards streets — and at metered stalls in the city's municipal parking lot. The public is advised to observe all towaway regulations.
Additional parking also may be found at the following locations: Neal S. Blaisdell Center, state Capitol parking lot, Kalanimoku Building parking garage, One Kapiolani Building, Ali'i Place, the state's Makai Garage, the Territorial Office Building, and other parking areas in the Capitol district.
Earlier Wednesday, a motorcade will run from Nu'uanu Memorial Park & Mortuary down Bishop Street and onto South King Street.
At 11 a.m. Thursday, the burial motorcade will proceed from the mortuary down Bishop and onto South King to allow Fasi's casket to pass by Honolulu Hale and the Frank F. Fasi Municipal Building a final time.
The motorcade will then proceed mauka on Alapa'i Street, 'ewa on Beretania Street, then mauka on Queen Emma Street and head directly to the National Cemetery of the Pacific at Memorial Punchbowl.
The Punchbowl services are private.
