About Aloha Tower
Built in 1926, Aloha Tower served as a lighthouse that could be seen from 15 miles away. Aloha Tower welcomed visitors to O’ahu for nearly 100 years when ships arrived to our ports. In the early days, Aloha Tower celebrated the arrival of ships with entertainment by the Royal Hawaiian Band, hula dancers, and lei makers. This tradition lasted until planes started to welcome visitors to our islands. After the attack of Pearl Harbor, Aloha Tower served as the Pacific control center for the military.
Unfortunately, the 10th floor observation deck is currently closed due to COVID-19. But we can still gather at Aloha Tower and appreciate its history as one of Hawaii’s most iconic symbol of hospitality and aloha.
Let’s meet in front of the Aloha Tower on Saturday, Feb. 27th at 10am. If you plan to attend, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, Feb 26th with your name and phone number. We will retain the list for contact tracing purposes. Also, please read this previous post regarding Guidelines for Urban Sketchers Chapter Gatherings.
We look forward to seeing your happy faces!
