SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Southwest Airlines is already in the swing of celebrating direct flights from Sacramento to Hawaii, but it's not too late to join the party.
The party at Fremont Park in Midtown started on Nov. 4 and goes through Saturday, Nov. 9. Pro tip: there are prizes.
"We’re giving away a different prize package every day, so click here to get a head start on your chance to win," Southwest writes on its website, adding that grand prize packages are in partnership with Southwest Vacations®.
WHEN: 4:45 p.m. - 7 p.m.
WHERE: Fremont Park
Sacramento is one of the first cities launching their direct flights from the airport to places like Honolulu, on the island of Oahu, and Kahului, on the island of Maui. In all, you can board in Sacramento and choose from any of the five Hawaiian options.
For the fun of it, I checked out flight prices for the weekend before Thanksgiving. Southwest's famous "Wanna Get Away" prices were pretty low! Here's the breakdown:
Date searched: Nov. 6
Dates traveling: Thursday, Nov. 21 to Monday, Nov. 25
Sacramento to Maui: $273
Maui to Sacramento: $223
Total airfare cost with taxes: $495.60

A Sacramento couple was featured this Valentine's Day by Southwest Airlines for the adorable way they met and fell in love. "We kind of like to tell it in chapters, because it's one of the stories that's hard to follow if you don't set it up with some chapters."
