Welcome to Nonstop Kakaako, a (hopefully) annual block party in Kakaako that brought together food, retail and entertainment over a six-acre space along Auahi Street.
Thousands turned out last night to be part of this mega pop-up experience, courtesy of Nonstop Honolulu and Kamehameha Schools. It featured everything from live entertainment to a ladies lounge to a beer garden. Definitely something for everyone. Not to mention, we announced the winners of the Best of Nonstop awards.
I got to emcee the event — yes, all eight hours of it — with my pal, Doc Rock, and had a front-row seat to the entire experience. We saw food trucks like Simply Ono and RB’s Ice Cream Desserts generously give away food to the crew working on the main stage and bands like Yoza and Lost at Sea tear it down. Lots of positive vibes everywhere.
Here’s what last night’s event looked like:
