95. PARTY WITH THE LO­CALS

101 Things to Do (Maui) - - Romance & After Dark -

“Lucky We Live Wailuku” is the motto of WAILUKU’S FIRST FRI­DAY events that cel­e­brate lo­cal flair and of­fer­ings each month. Hit MAR­KET STREET on any first Fri­day of the month to check out the town’s block-party event. Mu­si­cal-and-dance per­for­mances are held in WAILUKU BANYAN TREE PARK, and street-side booths fea­ture lo­cal artists and foods, with crafts avail­able for pur­chase.

This event is free to town mem­bers and vis­i­tors alike. Mar­ket Street is closed from 5:30 p.m. for the gath­er­ing (6-9 p.m.), so make sure you show up in time to find park­ing and catch all the fun. Also be pre­pared to check out nearby

shows or restau­rants af­ter­ward, since the party doesn’t stop when the street re­opens.

The town of KI­HEI also gets in on the action with its monthly

FOURTH FRI­DAY CEL­E­BRA­TION, as do two other Val­ley Isle towns that re­cently part­nered with the county to launch MAUI FRI­DAY TOWN PAR­TIES.

LA­HAINA’S PARTY is set for the sec­ond Fri­day of each month, and MAKAWAO is set for the third Fri­day. Ex­pect spe­cials at stores and eater­ies, live EN­TER­TAIN­MENT and maybe even SPE­CIAL TOURS, like free can­dle­light tours of the Bald­win Home.

Each town has its own per­son­al­ity, mak­ing each town party a dif­fer­ent cel­e­bra­tion to be had. For more in­for­ma­tion, log on to mauifri­days.com.
