EVERY FEBRUARY. .THE CARNIVAL COMES TO PUNAHOU HIGH SCHOOL AND ENTERTAINS THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE READY TO HAVE FUN .. IT IS A CUSTOMn THAT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR A LONG TIME!!!The Carnival is sponsored by the School's Junior Class to benefit the Punahou financial aid program and student activities Carnival Trivia
Over 5,000 pounds of sugar was donated to the
Carnival for malasadas. Is that why they are so good?

The two hamburger booths each cook 108 patties every 10 minutes. At that rate they could make over 31,000 burgers at the carnival. Eat them your way: plain, teri or with cheese!

In 2006, 8,000 jars of mango chutney and 2,000 jars of lilikoi butter were made for the Carnival. Fruit picking and cooking is completed during the summer. They still sell out on Friday!

The Haku Lei Booth began in 1972. That makes 34 years. Do you have one?

2,100 gallons - over 33,000 cups - of Portuguese Bean Soup are enjoyed at Carnival. Why? It's great!

There are 64 booths and 18 E. K. Fernandez rides
at the Punahou Carnival. How many have you tried?

Punahou School Campus (Punahou Street and Wilder Avenue). Limited parking on School grounds. Additional parking is available at several sites in the area for a fee: The Lutheran Church of Honolulu ; Central Union Church; Maryknoll School (both campuses); and at St. Clement's Episcopal Church.

OR TAKE THE BUS AND AVOID SEARCHING FOR PARKING! Take bus 4, 5 or 18 to the corner of Punahou Street and Wilder Avenue.
