Record 70,000 attend Honolulu Family Festival
About 70,000 people attended this year's Honolulu Family Festival at Magic Island, helping it reach its largest attendance in five years.
Honolulu 100, which oversaw the city's year-long centennial celebration in 2005, made the announcement Monday. The 2006 festival attracted more than 65,000 people.
The festival ran from Thursday to Sunday and part of the proceeds will go toward improvements at Ala Moana Beach Park.
The Honolulu Family Festival is presented by Mayor Mufi Hannemann, the City and County of Honolulu, Honolulu 100, E.K. Fernandez Shows and the Mayor's Office of Culture and Arts.
