Get your malasada (or Portuguese doughnut) on this weekend at the Aloha Festival.
Arizona Aloha Festival
Saturday, March 8

This weekend, the 20th annual Arizona Aloha Festival will go down at Tempe Town Lake, bringing Hawaiian and Polynesian culture to the Valley. In addition to live performances and tons of vendors (you know you want one of those dashboard hula girls), you'll be able to pig out on a variety of Hawaiian eats including kalua pork, SPAM musubi, and more. And don't forget our favorite dessert, malasadas, a Portuguese confection similar to a doughnut. Admission to the festival, which will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both day, is free. For more information visit the Arizona Aloha Festival website.
