Live Music!

Live music is the main attraction at this market that gives the Aloha atmosphere an electric vibe.

You name it they can play it. Get on up to the dance floor and enjoy the moment! 

 

Great Food!

With many local food vendors, everyone in your group will find something they enjoy eating.
