For every season premiere, the long-running TV series Hawaii Five-0 and CBS hold a beachside party together with their fans. They held a party called ‘Sunset on the Beach’ in celebration of the show’s seventh season premiere in Waikiki, Honolulu.
Series regulars include Scott Caan, Daniel Dae Kim, Jorge Garcia, Chi McBride and Alex O’Loughlin led the annual celebration. Local talents such as Taylor Wily, Dennis Chun and Teilor Grubbs who had a chance to film with them since July also attended. Not to mention executive producer Peter Lenkov, who also had a fair share of having to meet and greet the loyal fans of Hawaii Five-0.

According to Movie News Guide
, Lenkov confirmed that aside from the celebration, the real essence of the event is about meeting the fans of the police procedural drama. Freebies were given to the fans who showed up a few hours before the event started. The fans who came early got to take home challenge coins, tote bags, souvenirs and scripts from the series.
“For me it’s (all about) meeting the fans,” said Lenkov. “We come in at like noon and meet the fans. For me, that’s the real treat.”
There were even some fans who came from different parts of the world and not only from Hawaii. Star Advertiser
said that one fan came all the way from San Diego, California just to witness the event. Kailey Koons was among who fell in line hours before the stars of the show made their appearance on the red carpet.
“I started watching during season one,” Koons said. “Being in Hawaii and all is just amazing, but being able to watch the (premiere) episode with the cast is so cool.”
Every year thousands of the show’s fans from all over the world gather in Hawaii to catch a glimpse of the cast. This is also a way for Hawaii Five-0 to give their thanks to their loyal fans.
Hawaii Five- airs at 8:00 p.m. Fridays on CBS.
