There hundreds of ways to enjoy food at the I Love Kailua
Town Party yesterday. Carly Yong, 10, and her cousin Noah
Schultz, 4, show how to eat a cheese and pepperoni pizza
from Round Table.

Kailua fest has
blossomed over
the years


The annual "I Love Kailua" town party started nine years ago as a fund-raiser for the Lani-Kailua Outdoor Circle, focusing on plants and community beautification.

It has grown into one big food fest, with some 16 neighborhood restaurants pitching in.

The event has paid off, since 1993, in $260,000 worth of beautification projects at Alala Point, and plantings for the median strip upon entering Kailua, according to LK Outdoor Circle president Lynn Turner.

A wooden parrot watches over the booth at Cisco's
Cantina, judged "Best Decorated Booth," while
employees dish out BBQ ribs.

But it's the food that keeps people coming back. Here are the menu highlights:

>> Best entree: Cinnamon's Korean BBQ
>> Best dessert: Zia's bread pudding with pear sauce
>> Best pupu: Lucy's Grill & Bar's kalua pig with assorted salsas
>> Best salad: The Shack's Oriental chicken salad
>> Best soup: Diane's chowder (the blackened haddock was also ono)
>> Best comfort food: Agnes (Kevin's Two Boots wasn't far behind)
>> Best vegetarian food: Pali Gardens

It was one big outdoor lunch party as below, from left,
