The popular Windward Hoʻolauleʻa is back with an expanded lineup, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sept. 26 at Windward Community College.

Sponsored by the college in conjunction with the Kāneʻohe Business Group, the hoʻolauleʻa is free, offers something for the whole family and, new this year, includes a job fair.

Theme for this year is E Pū Like Kākou, or let’s come together as one. “We wanted to send a message of hope in these challenging times, that we’re one community and need to support each other,” explains hoʻolauleʻa chair Herb Lee. “The event is a way to highlight the talent, culture and businesses of Windward Oʻahu as well as educational and career opportunities.”

Featured performers include Nā Hōkū Hanohano award winners Ledward Kaapana, Holunape, Brother Noland, Kupaoa and Mailani.
