"The Bazaar will be a culmination of history and fun, with our traditional favorites - such as the fresh malasadas, rides, games, Kountry Kitchen, Famous Dave's Ribs, Outback Steakhouse Lahaina - along with our local-style plates and chow fun. We will also have a few new activities, such as an Angry Birds booth and a keiki book store."
