Upcountry Maui Town of Makawao Celebrates Going Green at "Friday Town Parties"
On Friday, March 15, 2013 from 6 – 9 p.m., the Upcountry Maui town of Makawao celebrates going GREEN at “Friday Town Parties”. This festive street
festival, held on the third Friday of each month, will show the town’s commitment to Maui’s beauty by promoting green practices to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Feature Main Stage entertainment includes EKOLU trio and back by popular demand, Joshua-on-Maui and his band. The Makai stage will
feature soloist Richard Dancil, followed by KKHS Ukulele Students and The Na Ali`i Big Band of Jazz. And the top of Makawao will feature Hoaloha Westcott and Children of the Forest. Makawao merchants will offer retail and service specials.
The “Makawao Third Friday Town Party” monthly event series offers a unique opportunity for the Maui public to kick-off the weekend in leisurely
exploration of historic Makawao, connect and mingle with the many merchants, artists and neighbors in the area, and to enjoy a festive outdoor event in the quaint atmosphere the town provides. In addition to appealing to the local community, the Makawao Third Friday Town Party is an excellent opportunity for Maui’s residents and visitors to explore Makawao’s one-of-a kind town center.
