The first of two Drive-through Pickups took place Saturday for Carnival 2021, with Punahou families picking up everything from malasadas to Portuguese bean soup to mango chutney and hulihuli chicken. Along with Carnival food, drivers made their way through the various pickup stations to retrieve plants and other goods from White Elephant, O-Men and Pa‘ani that were pre-purchased online. The second Drive-through Pickup takes place on Monday.
To adhere to State and School health and safety measures, student leaders from the Class of 2022 had to reimagine this year’s Carnival. Although the traditional two-day event wasn’t possible this year, the students still found a way for the Punahou community to enjoy some of the same favorites of Carnival.
“You guys really rose to the occasion,” President Mike Latham ’86 told the Carnival leaders early Saturday, before the event. “You were creative. You were innovative, and you invented something totally new – and that’s really impressive … This is a historic moment. Punahou has not had this degree of disruption probably since World War II. And just as we remember those students who went through that challenging time and rose to the occasion, people are going to remember you guys – what you did this weekend, what you did today, what you did for your Class, and what you did for the School. And that’s something you should be really proud of.”
