BLUEGRASS HAWAII MONTHLY JAM

Manoa Valley District Park, 2721 Kaaipu Ave, Honolulu, HI 96822
Sunday August 16, 2015, 1 - 5 pm

For our August Monthly Jam, please come and join us at Manoa Valley District Park in Honolulu. The park is conveniently located in Manoa Valley and is a gorgeous spot, surrounded by high mountain ridges and huge rainbows that span the entire sky nearly every afternoon. High mountains surround you and emerald green grass stretches out before you. Many trees provide shady spots and we will have our pop up tents for more shade. The bathrooms are well kept, and there is parking, but it does seem to be a bit busy on weekends, so come early.

DATE: SUNDAY, August 16, 2015

TIME/LOCATION: Manoa Valley District Park, 2721 Kaaipu Ave, Honolulu, HI 96822

BRING: Traditional instruments, chairs or blanket, cooler, snacks, drinks and a POTLUCK TO share ... and your tapping feet and dancing shoes too!

DIRECTIONS: Exit the H1 Freeway at University Ave. Head north toward the mountains. Stay on University Avenue as it goes uphill and then downhill. Then turn right on E. Manoa Rd. Go through Manoa town and then turn left on Kahaloa Ave. We will be on the left side under the trees.
