Free Kids Pizza Making Classes at Prima

May 18, 2017

PRIMA makes its most anticipated announcement since the arrival of Hawaii’s first Stefano Ferrara Forni brick pizza oven from Naples, Italy back in 2011…free kids pizza making classes! We do “pizza” a little different than the standard place, and we wanted to expand awareness and education to children in the community. Parents can sign their kids up on a first come first served basis by messaging the Prima Kailua Facebook page. The classes are offered to kids ages 5-12, and they must be accompanied by an adult. Classes will be held every Thursday from 330-4pm starting 5/25.

PRIMA, serving hand crafted kiawe wood fired neapolitan pizzas out of its Stefano Ferrara Italian brick oven since 2011, sources product from local farmers, ranchers, and fishermen along with imported flour, tomato, and cured meats from Italy to help cultivate our mission of honest, good food.

I Love Kailua Town Party

April 7, 2017

Get ready to celebrate the silver anniversary edition of Kailua’s biggest event of the year: the 25th Annual “I Love Kailua” Town Party, taking place on Kailua Road in Windward Oahu from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday April 30.

A favorite feature of this community street party are the food booths with flavorful specialties from Kailua-area restaurants. The Town Party is also an opportunity to enjoy shopping, great entertainment and family fun. Over 50 Windward artists and hand-crafters will have their work on sale; there will be plants and orchid sales; and the popular “I Love Kailua” logo booth will have limited-edition apparel and accessories bearing this year’s Town Party logo, designed by Kailua artist Thomas Deir.

Party-goers also can look forward to non-stop live entertainment; the Kama`aina Kids keiki fun zone with rides and jumpers; Castle Medical Center’s mini health fair with free screenings; and a variety of community groups with information to share.

The 2017 Kailua Town Party is a fundraiser presented by the nonprofit Lani-Kailua Outdoor Circle and supported by Alexander & Baldwin Properties, Inc. Organizers encourage Kailua residents to leave their cars at home and walk or bicycle to the pedestrian-friendly event. What better way to work up an appetite before hitting the food booths?
