KILAUEA — The jail is coming back, said Terrie Johnson, a parent at the Kaua‘i Christian Academy in Kilauea.
Johnson and a host of parent volunteers were busy setting up for the school’s 10th Annual Fall Festival which runs from 4 to 9 p.m. today and Sunday.
Coinciding with Halloween, the Fall Festival livens up the season with a variety of games, activities, food, entertainment and more on the grounds of the school located at 4000 Kilauea Rd.
“We have two cars for the smash car,” said Daniel Moore, KCA principal. “One is already in place and the other is stored in back. If we have to, we can even get three cars.”
Moore is excited because this is the first time in 10 years the school is going to host the popular community event for two nights, inviting the community to come and spend a safe Halloween Sunday.
Some of the unique activities joining the smash car include a hayride, a paintball run, air-soft, pie in the face, fishy pong and more.
These join a host of carnival-type games for keiki of all ages.
Adults can try for a tank dive for two donated by SeaSport Divers, said Kandi Bloss, in charge of the silent auction.
In addition to that item, Bloss said there is a two-night stay at the St. Regis Princeville Hotel, a two-night stay at the Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas, numerous dinners and a lot of other items including kayak tours and helicopter rides donated by community donors.
Johnson said there will be lots of live entertainment for the two nights including Malani Bilyeu, Michael Ruff, Kirby Keogh and Pancho Graham, Island Breeze, and a hula performance by Aunty Donnalei and Halau Na Pua o Kekukui.
Moore said some of the food offerings include funnel cakes, Hanalei Taro and Juice, Killah Steaks, Coldstone ice cream, and Small Town Coffee, making the trip out from Kapa‘a.
“We couldn’t do this without everyone’s help,” Moore said. “We have 85 students in preschool through grade 12, and 54 sets of parents. Everyone is doing something to ensure this Fall Festival is a success. The students will be let out at half-day Friday and will spend the afternoon getting ready.”
Moore said the new school gym under construction on campus has been designated the “Fall Zone,” and serves as a staging area for all the different stations that were being set up on the campus.
“It’s being worked on now, so what better place for the Fall Zone?” Moore said. “Signs are being refurbished, prizes are being sorted, and everything is laid out under roof.”
