At the Best of Honolulu Festival, kids will have a blast in the Dave and Busters Keiki Zone with face painting, balloon animals, games, rides and more! Title sponsor American Savings Bank will be giving out money just for using its "Pay A Friend" feature on its mobile app or for showing your ASB card at the ASB booth. There's also a lucky drawing for a $100 Amazon gift card every hour. There's fun for the kids, too—keiki can join in on a football toss for prizes!

Kaiser Permanente sponsors the Health and Wellness Zone, a fun-filled area full of tips and games to keep your family healthy and happy.

 HONOLULU Family will also be holding their annual Cover Kids Search. They are searching for local kids between the ages of 1 and 12 years old to be on their covers next year. A professional photographer will take your child’s photo on site and HONOLULU Family will waive the $10 Cover Kids entry fee just for the event.
