The Big Kahuna Birthday Bash


A year ago the Sun Link modern streetcar started operations in Tucson.  Here’s their fun way to celebrate  this anniversary — from one shopping destination to another, and rides all day are free on July 25, 2015.

By the way, “kahuna” in Hawaiian usually means high priest, if you’re wondering, but it has taken on other meanings in English.

Happy One Year anniversary, Sun Link. It’s luau time.
