This Weekend on Maui
It has been a fun and busy first five days for The Maui Real Estate . It is likely to be a busy weekend in the office and showing properties for us as well. That being said, there are a lot of fun events happening this weekend on Maui. I have posted a few highlights below.
The Haiku Ho’olaulea and Flower Festival is being held tomorrow at the Haiku Community Center. The event runs from 9:00AM to 5:00 PM. The Festival features entertainment, food, crafts, flower demonstrations, and a farmer’s market. There will be a number of great North Shore Restaurants with ono grinds (good food for our mainland readers). Performers will include the Hui Lanikila Halau, Dr. Nat, Marty Dread, Gail Swanson, Maui Kilakila, and more. Proceeds from the festival benefit Haiku School, Haiku Boys and Girls Club and the Haiku Community Association for local youth education enrichment and activities.
On Sunday, Manao Radio is hosting Barryfest 2010 at the Keopuolani Park Amphitheater (next to Maui Nui Botanical Gardens) in Kahului. This fundraiser commemorates the eighth year of the listener supported radio station. It also celebrates the life of one of the station’s founders Barry Shannon. Barry passed away a few years back. This is one of the biggest if not the biggest musical festival on Maui. There are 15 bands booked including some of Maui and Hawaii’s most talented rock musicians. Barryfest runs from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Gates open at 10:30 AM. Tickets are available at the gate for $25. Keiki (5-12) and kupuna (65+) have a reduced admission charge of $15. Bring your hat, sunscreen, blankets and low backed chairs for this fun musical event.
You can support Maui OnStage community theater this weekend by checking out the opening of to Kill a Mocking Bird at the Historic Iao Theater in Wailuku. You may be a little late for opening night, but there are also performances on Saturday Night at 7:30 and on Sunday afternoon at 3:30.
These are just a few of the things happening on Maui this weekend.
