“Kaka’ako Rocks” – A Community Rock Painting Party
Spread the "Aloha Spirit" in our community and around the island!
The idea is simple: paint inspirational messages, pictures or faces on rocks and randomly leave them around the Kaka’ako community or your local neighborhood for others to find, spreading the “Aloha Spirit.” With so much negativity on social media and on the news, we feel our island needs a little love.
Our first party is on Sunday, October 22. Stop by anytime between 11am-3pm and paint some rocks. All ages are welcome. FREE.
