After you hit the Maui Swap Meet* (open 7am - 1pm at MACC), join us as we Celebrate Historic Lahaina on the West Side of Maui! Bring the whole family for a day of fun and interactive history! There's no better way to learn about the Hawaiian culture than an event like Celebrate Historic Lahaina. Lahaina is located just 25 miles from our Kihei vacation rentals, and is a wonderful day trip for the entire family. There are lots of things to see on the West Side, so plan for a full day of fun at this event.
Celebrate Historic Lahaina is a free community event (10am to 4pm) that celebrates the Native Hawaiian culture of Lahaina. The day full of fun includes:
Demonstrations of Hawaiian cultural arts and ancient Hawaiian games
Performances by Hawaiian entertainers
Free Rides on a 30-foot Sailboat
A Hawaiian traditional food tasting booth
Surfing contest in Lahaina Harbor
Traditional fishing demonstrations
A Keiki Fishing Game
Guided Walking Tours
Arts & Crafts Fair
"Celebrate Historic Lahaina will be an event that will actualize many of the goals for the harbor front area that were developed during the recent IMAGINE community planning process," said Theo Morrison, Lahaina Restoration Foundation executive director. The IMAGINE project is aimed at creating a year-round Native Hawaiian sense of place in Lahaina.
Celebrate Historic Lahaina will be held at Banyan Tree Park (Lahaina Harbor) on Saturday Aug. 24th from 10am - 4pm.
