Dole Plantation invites the public to attend its annual Family Fun Day on April 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The free event features live musical performances, hula, keiki activities, prize giveaways, local food, games and more.

The Family Fun Day is well-known for the Central O‘ahu-area community groups and schools that join Dole Plantation as part of the “pineapple experience.” Students and teachers from area public schools will offer keiki games, arts & crafts, food booths – from poke bowls, waffle dogs to ethnic plate lunches – and other activities at a nominal fee as fundraisers for their programs. Homemade baked goods, raffle prizes and White Elephant will also be offered.

Free entertainment is provided by area school groups, clubs and other organizations that are part of the fabric of the Wahiawā community.

The April 6 event is also the only day of the year when all members of the public – kama‘aina, military and visitors – benefit from buy-one-get-one-free admissions to the Pineapple Garden Maze and Plantation Garden Tour. Dole Plantation also offers reduced admission to the Pineapple Express Train Tour.

In addition, kama‘aina receive a 15 percent discount off of most retail merchandise in the Dole Plantation store.
