“FRI­DAY NIGHT IS ART NIGHT”

Hap­pens ev­ery Fri­day night from one end of Front Street to the other. The Wharf ’s own

Simon-Jon Gallery, lo­cated mid-level in The Wharf, par­tic­i­pates. Live en­ter­tain­ment on Cen­ter Stage from 5 to 7 p.m.

2ND FRI­DAY LAHAINA TOWN PARTY

The 2nd Fri­day of each month is even more spe­cial when Lahaina holds its Town Party from 6 to 9 p.m. The Wharf has it all — great shop­ping spe­cials, seven dif­fer­ent restau­rants with in­ter­na­tional fla­vors, an in­ter­net café and cof­fee house, fam­ily game cen­ter, first-run movies and live en­ter­tain­ment on Cen­ter Stage.

THURS­DAY, FEB. 19 — CHI­NESE NEW YEAR

“Three sheep bring har­mony and pros­per­ity.” So says an an­cient Chi­nese proverb. This bodes well for 2015 since it is the Year of the Sheep. And as in pre­vi­ous years, The Wharf Cinema Cen­ter will rec­og­nize the spe­cial oc­ca­sion. Mas­ter Ben Seng Au and the Shaolin Arts So­ci­ety re­turn to The Wharf for the 30th year, putting on a dis­play of skill and strength while per­form­ing Kung Fu demon­stra­tions. The ex­plod­ing sound of fire­crack­ers will echo as a lion dragon snakes its way through the Cen­ter.

MARCH 7-8 — OCEAN ARTS FES­TI­VAL

Lahaina cel­e­brates the an­nual migration of the Pa­cific Hump­back Whales with the Ocean Arts Fes­ti­vals in Banyan Tree Park. Whale re­searchers, ed­u­ca­tional pre­sen­ta­tions and videos will be shown in Camp­bell Park lo­cated next to The Wharf Cinema Cen­ter. On Satur­day and Sun­day at Banyan Tree Park, whale re­search groups will be avail­able to ed­u­cate any­one in­ter­ested in learn­ing more about th­ese ma­jes­tic crea­tures. Artists will dis­play their finest marine-themed pieces for sale, and ev­ery­one en­joys Hawai­ian en­ter­tain­ment, a kids’ ocean art con­test, whale photo dis­plays and a “Crea­ture Fea­ture” touch pool ex­hibit by Maui Ocean Cen­ter. Ad­mis­sion is free.

APRIL 1819  BANYAN TREE BIRTH­DAY

Planted on April 24, 1873, Lahaina’s fa­mous Banyan Tree cel­e­brates 141 years of good health, fame and glory. The cel­e­bra­tion in­cludes a birth­day cake, clown acts, keiki games, as well as na­ture-in­spired art­works by lo­cal artists. There’s some­thing fun for ev­ery­one, in­clud­ing hands-on art ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren. Vis­i­tors and res­i­dents will gather at Banyan Square to pay their re­spect to the ven­er­a­ble tree dur­ing this an­nual cel­e­bra­tion. Ad­mis­sion is free.
