But it is still a school, so expect to learn a few things. Like how to eat a crepe while standing in line to bid on a two-night stay at the Pagoda Hotel.
Free admission, 10 a.m.–8 p.m., Windward Community College, Great Lawn, windwardhoolaulea.com.

This month, Kalaniana‘ole Highway will be shut down, not for more rusty railing repairs, but for a community trek from Sandy Beach Park to Maunalua Bay. Register during packet pickup at the Hui Nalu Canoe Club on Oct. 4 or, if space remains, on race day. Participants will receive cool commemorative glass fishing floats—plus gorgeous morning views of East O‘ahu.
$30–$40, 6:30 a.m., meet at Sandy Beach Park, kaiwicoastrun.org.
