Hawai’i Academy of Arts and Science is gearing up for its “HAASome Family Day,” slated to be held Saturday, May 16.

The day will kickoff at 6:30 a.m. with a “HAASome Run” that will include a 5k and 10k. The course will take a scenic route around Green Lake in Kapoho. Green Lake is only one of two freshwater lakes on the Big Island and is surrounded by lush rainforest. The path of the 5 and 10k will circle the more than 400-year-old lake.

A keiki run, part of the “HAASome Run,” will take place later in the day on the campus of HAAS.

From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. the school will host its “HAASome Family Day” events, which include entertainment, a bouncy house, and water slide, in addition to a silent auction, art sales, face painting, food booths, keiki carnival games, a table-top golf course, and arts and craft booths.

Families can purchase all-day passes for the bouncy house and water slide for $5.


Those interested in participating in the “HAASome Fun Run” can print out and mail in a registration form, which can found online. Complete online registration is also available with an added fee. Pre-registration is $5 for students and $10 for adults. Late registration is $10 for students and $15 for adults. Entry fees are non-refundable.


The event will benefit the students of HAAS Public Charter School.
