A day of drug-free thrills
kicks off a month of awareness
The event will be part of the coalition's Cultural Fair. The theme is "Express Yourself . . . Drug-Free!" and young performers will fill two stages with nonstop entertainment, ranging from ethnic music and dance, to "Brown Bags to Stardom" winner Forte, to martial arts and drill team performances.
In addition, there will be food, crafts booths, face painting and kupuna who will help fair-goers make lauhala bracelets, ti-leaf lei and kukui nut spinning tops.
There will also be several information booths staffed by such community organizations as Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the Hawaii National Guard and the Queen Lili'uokalani Children's Center.
Ilima Intermediate is at 91-884 Fort Weaver Road. Parking will be available on campus and at nearby Pohakea Elementary. Admission is free.
