What is PetWalk?
PetWalk is the Hawaiian Humane Society’s annual charity walk. In celebration of all the donations collected, pets and their people walk around Magic Island. PetWalk features food, fun and entertainment. Games include a pet costume contest, pet float competition, great giveaways and so much more. PetWalk is also the only chance for community members and their pets to spend the morning at beautiful Magic Island, thanks to a generous one-day exemption by Mayor Kirk Caldwell and the City & County of Honolulu’s Parks division.
