The 2008 Pearl Harbor Show & Shine was a phenomenal success! It was an incredible turnout, and much mahalos to all of my volunteers for making it happen. Emily, Jason, Steve, Tig, Chris, Tom, Jim B., Bryan, Papo, and anyone else I missed...thanks a bunch I couldn't have done it without you.
100+ vehicles attended, of which, 88 competed for the top 3 in their class. The winners will be announced on the www.buildthetrack.com
website, but we gave away 12 beautiful trophies at the end of the day plus 100 free t-shirts to all of our entrants!
It was much more than a car show...with literally THOUSANDS of people attending. The Car Show was a primary highlight, but there was so much to see and do it was simply crazy. There were HUGE keiki bouncers, wrestling matches, live entertainment by the Ka'ala Boys and 808, comedian Russell Peters and company, rock-climbing, a cool azz american gladiators style knock'em off thingamabob, Texas Hold'Em poker tournaments (our man Papo won a round trip ticket to somewhere!), arts and crafts, a keiki ride-along choo choo train, carnival rides, a petting zoo, a scuba/snorkel pool where you could dive with real professionals, an absolutely huge amount of food vendors - everything from pizza to hot dogs to burritos to mix plate and more, tons of carnival games, and even tours of a Japanese cruiser, and finally tons of prizes like a roundtrip to Vegas! Whew!
It all capped off with a 30 minute Fireworks Spectacular that was set and timed to music, and was practically in your face. It was an amazing day, and the car show went off without a hitch with more entries than we had last year!
Here's the photos, and thanks to all who attended!
