Aloha Friday! (A little early)

It’s one of the busiest weeks of the year in Waikiki as the NFL Pro Bowl returns to Hawaii for the 32nd time. The best players in the NFL travel to the Hawaiian Islands with their families for a week of fun in the sun and three hours of “Bump and Run” football.

I’ve been taking my family to the Pro Bowl for as long as I can remember. Last year, we bought a package from Jose’s Mexican Restaurant: an “all you can eat” Prime Rib Breakfast, round-trip transportation, a fun pre-game tailgate party, and game tickets. It only set me back about a month’s income!

Here are some Pro Bowl events you can attend this year without spending a dime!

Sunset On The Beach – Pro Bowl Style
Friday, January 27th at Queen’s Beach Waikiki (4:30-9:00 p.m.)

Pro Bowl ‘Ohana Day
Watch the players practice on Saturday, January 28th at Aloha Stadium (8:30-11:30 a.m.)

NFL/HTA Youth Football and Cheerleading Clinics – Advance registration required

Pro Bowl All-Star Block Party Waikiki

And, of course, you can attend the game on Sunday, January 29th at Aloha Stadium. Kickoff is 2:00 p.m. Tickets are still available at

If you’re in Waikiki this week, have some fun and enjoy all the festivities the Pro Bowl offers!
