Show your aloha
Besides being a colorful symbol of aloha spirit, an Aloha Festivals ribbon gets you discounted (sometimes even free) admission to select events. The 2006 ribbon features this year's theme, "Na Paniolo Hui O Hawaii" ("The Great Cowboys of Hawaii"). Buy one for $5 and you'll also get a program of festival events, which kick off 10 a.m. Friday at Honolulu Hale. They're for sale at 7-Eleven, Hilo Hattie and Safeway stores, and on Oahu at the Aloha Festivals office in Ward Warehouse, Aloha Tower Marketplace, the Waikiki Community Center and at several Waikiki hotels.
