Weekend Events on Maui

Share this

This is just a quick blog post highlighting some of this weekend’s activities on Maui. As usual, there is plenty going on around our beautiful little island in the middle of the Pacific. These are just some of the highlights.

Paia town is hosting another Final Friday event tomorrow night. This is the second month in a row where the Paia Merchants Association is hosting this event. The first event was pretty well attended with minimal publicity. Shops will be open late with many serving food and drinks starting around 6:00 PM. I know a couple of shops including Letarte and Hana Highway Surf are hosting sales. New Yoga apparel store Lululemon is hosting a party celebrating their opening at the Paia Inn Courtyard starting at 9:00. These are just some of the merchant’s planned activities.

The Maui Arts and Cultural Center has a couple of good shows lined up in the Castle Theater this weekend. The Larry Carlton Trio takes the stage on Friday night with a mix of Jazz, Blues, Rock and more. Saturday night, Mohala Mai will be performing a variety of traditional and contemporary Hula. Check out the MACC website for details and ticket information.

Saturday is the 6th Annual Lahaina Town clean up. Volunteers will be meeting starting at 10 AM at Kamehameha Iki Park next to 505 Front St. The clean up will be focused on the beach parks and shoreline stretching from Launiupoko to Akaluaiki. This is the first of five major community beach clean ups scheduled over the next month. There will also be clean ups in October in Kihei, Central Maui, Paia and the Hana area. We hope to provide additional details as we get closer to those events.

If you are looking for something for the grommets to do this weekend, you may want to check out the Stone Wave Skate Park at the Paia Youth and Cultural Center on Saturday. Volcom will be sponsoring a Skate Bash from 12:00-5:00 PM. There will demos, giveaways and pro and amateur skaters shredding in the park.

Last but not least, there may be some exciting action along the northern shorelines of Maui this weekend as the forecast is calling for the first high surf advisory of the new fall/winter surf season. Experienced wave riders can expect to see sets of up to 15 feet on the faces at selected surf breaks along the North Shore starting on Sunday.
