It’s gonna be a Rogue Christmas in Kaka‘ako, as Honolulu Night + Market caps the year with a festive lineup. The monthly streetfest once again will be the place to be for entertainment, fashion, shopping, art and food.
If you haven’t signed up already, consider taking part in Make-a-Wish Hawaii’s Jingle Rock Run, a 5K race and Keiki Sprint (ages 12 and under) to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. The fun run will take runners and walkers through Kaka’ako, Downtown, and then back to Honolulu Night Market. Festive attire is encouraged, and strollers and pets are welcome. All proceeds benefit Make-A-Wish Hawaii. If you’d like to take part in the event, register now at raceroster.com
If you’ll be participating in the event, be sure to email a photo of yourself, keiki, pet(s) and anyone else who’ll be running/walking with you. (Please email photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, phone number with subject line of “Jingle Rock Run”) The photo can be sent before the race, during the race, or even right after. We’ll be posting a gallery later this week of the photos, and giving out a $50 Hank’s Haute Dogs gift card to the person who sends our favorite photo. Contest ends at 11 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 21.
And don’t forget to like the Our Kaka‘ako Facebook page. Those who “like” the page between now and the end of Saturday’s Night Market will be eligible to win a $100 gift card from Highway Inn Kaka‘ako.
