For the first time, The Mililani Town Association has partnered with the City and County of Honolulu to present its fourth annual A Taste of Mililani 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. May 6 and 7 at Mililani District Park.

“This is the first time the event will be held two days in a row,” said Chris Guillermo, event chair and Mililani Town Association program specialist supervisor. “Last year we had 4,000 in attendance; this year we expect between 5,000 and 6,000 people per day.”

Guillermo said it has been fun working with the City and County because it makes the event that much larger. As a result, A Taste of Mililani is held in conjunction with the city’s “Sunset in the Park” event, which means outdoor movies for all to enjoy.

King Kong will be screened on Saturday, and The Ride will be the feature film on Sunday around 7 p.m. (or when the sun sets.)

In addition, special entertainment will include local bands such as Waipio Blend, Simplicity, Native Blend and more. There will be a boxing exhibition on both days, presented by local youth boxing groups, as well as gymnastics and hula halau performances.

For shoppers, A Taste of Mililani offers 40 arts and crafts vendors, with the ever-popular bouncers will keep the keiki busy.

Of course, the main draw of the “Taste” is the food, so look for 16 local vendors who’ll offer everything from sweet and sour spare ribs to kettle corn to fruit smoothies.

Participating vendors include Dong Yang Inn, Hawaiian Roasted Corn, Marujyu Market, Hawaiian Style Chili, 3 Star Catering, Marians Islandwide Catering, Woody’s Hot Dogs, Ono Kettle Corn, Pizza Hut Hawaii, K’s Restaurant, Time 2 Grind, Planet Smoothie, Slush Puppies, Ono Cheese Steak and Gen X Distributors.

“People should expect to have a good time, and they should expect there to be a bit of a crowd,” said Guillermo.

To that end, The Mililani Town Association and City and County of Honolulu have set up a shuttle that will run from 1 p.m. until after the movie is done. The shuttle will run from the Mililani Mauka Park and Ride and Mililani High School to the district park. Guests can also look for on-street parking.

There is no admission fee for A Taste of Mililani.
