It is Mother’s Day weekend on Maui and there is plenty of stuff to do with Mom. Here are a few events highlighting the Maui calendar this weekend. It should be another beautiful spring weekend so get out and have some fun.
- Seabury Hall will celebrate its 40th annual Craft Fair from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., on Saturday, on the Seabury Hall Campus. See more than one hundred of Hawaii’s best artists and crafters, shop for fresh produce from local farms, beautiful flower arrangements from Maunalei Flowers, and look for hundreds of treasures that can be found in the silent and live auctions. There are also plenty of activities for the kids, with games, face painting, pony rides, wet and dry slides, and the islands largest rummage sale. All proceeds from the Craft Fair support Seabury Hall’s financial aid program. Seabury Hall is located in Upcountry Maui about a mile up Olinda Road from downtown Makawao.
- If Mom likes Watersports, the OluKai Ho’olaule’a is happening on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, there will be two separate downwind Paddle events. In the morning there is a fun paddle from Paia Youth and Cultural Center to Kanaha Beach Beach Park. Later in the day, a competitive Paddle will occur from Maliko Gulch to Kanaha. It should be good conditions for the North Shore’s legendary downwind run as the trades make a long awaited return. At 4:00 PM, there will be live music at Kanaha Beach Park featuring performers such as Paula Fuga, Mishka and Anuhea. On Sunday, the focus shifts from Paddle Boards to Canoes with OC1 and OC2 races from Maliko to Kanaha. You can check out the full schedule of events on OluKai Ho’olaule’a website.
- If you are looking to take Mom out for brunch or dinner on Sunday, The Maui News has a nice guide to different Mother’s Day Dining specials around island.
He hope everyone has a great Mother’s Day Weekend, and to all the Moms who are reading the blog Hau`oli La Makuahine.
