New York Outrigger is pleased to announce that Hawaiian Airlines will continue as title sponsor for the 2016 Hawaiian Airlines Liberty Challenge. Their partnership has helped make the Hawaiian Airlines Liberty Challenge the largest Pacific Islands festival on the East Coast and one of the most competitive outrigger races in the world.
Hawaiian Airlines’ partnership makes possible the continuation of the Liberty Festival at Hudson River Park’s Pier 26. The Hawaiian Airlines Stage will feature musicians and dancers from throughout the Pacific, complimenting the festival events held throughout the day for people of all ages.
As the world’s most international outrigger race, Liberty is expected to draw teams from North and South America, Europe, Asia, the Pacific Islands, and Australia.
“As title sponsor of the Hawaiian Airlines Liberty Challenge, we are proud to expand the outrigger canoe race with free festivities for spectators, offering something for everyone,” said Avi Mannis, senior vice president of marketing at Hawaiian Airlines. “This is a great event to allow spectators of all ages to experience a taste of Hawaii and Polynesian culture.”
