First Friday was the first town based Friday evening event on Maui. Paia followed suit with their own successful Fourth Friday parties. We are now seeing other communities embrace this model of Friday events with the encouragement of the County of Maui. Makawao and Lahaina will both begin hosting Friday events. Here is a video via Maui Now showing highlights of the county press conference on Maui Friday Town Parties from earlier this week.
