A Summer Stage Recap

We wrapped up the summer with an event focused on music and performing arts…and we hope you enjoyed it! Across multiple stages, a variety of bands filled Cooke Street with their sounds! The Pinch of Salt warehouse also got in on the performance action, with the flashmob-style performance by Maori Haka Group, Rongomau.

In addition to our many street performers, The Still & Moving Center also did yoga acrobatics demonstrations.

Then, all the way on the Makai side of Cooke Street was another crowd favorite, Songbird & The Colors. The band drew a big ‘hana hou’ that had everyone on the street dancing!
