Let the rides and games begin! The Punahou Carnival starts at 11 a.m. tomorrow and the fun continues on Saturday.

Punahou is sweet!

The Class of 2004's
"Sizzlin' Safari" carnival
is fun for all, but don't
forget to brush afterward

It's time for sugary lips, sizzlin' games and flowers. No, we're not talkin' Valentine's Day, but the Punahou Carnival.

Can't you just taste those sugar-coated malasadas?

The Class of 2004 is hosting the event, dubbed Sizzlin' Safari and beginning at 11 a.m. Friday. The fun repeats 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday.

As usual, there'll be something for everyone, from the basic rides and grinds (Hawaiian plates, Portuguese bean soup, nachos, gyros, burgers, chili, noodles and, of course, malasadas) to those who like to shop (white elephant, plants, fresh produce, leis and flowers).

Youngsters can enter Kiddieland at the Diamond Head end of the carnival to avoid getting trampled by bigger thrill-seekers, and, as usual, art lovers can get their fill in an art gallery in the Gates Workshop of the Punahou Science Center, featuring the work of more than 200 artists. Works will be available for purchase. A live auction of vacation packages, electronics, jewelry and more will also take place in the Cornuelle Lecture Hall of the science center at 5 p.m. Saturday. Doors open at 4 p.m. Bring your checkbooks and credit cards. Of course, cash works, too.

Admission is free, but all that fun will cost you in scrip, at 25 cents per. (Those malasadas are still only 1 scrip each, so buy a bagful!)

The carnival takes place on the school grounds at 1601 Punahou St., where parking is limited. Extra parking will be available for a fee at the Lutheran Church of Honolulu, Central Union Church, Maryknoll School and St. Clement's Episcopal Church.
