The Hawaiian Paniolo (cowboy) Parade kicks off the 4th of July Rodeo Weekend
*Photo is actually the King Kamehameha Parade in Lahaina, I wanted to show the horses and leis...
The Paniolo Parade starts at 9;00 and runs along Makawao Avenue, complete with Hawaiian Rodeo Royalty, Beauty Queens, the Pa'u Riders and parade horses draped in fragrant Hawaiian Flower leis.
Maui's Classic Car Club will be in attendance as well as our own Paniolo Cowboys & Cowgirls, wearing traditional Hawaiian Lei's and flowers; floats with Live bands and more will be at this years Makawao 4th of July Parade.
This year, 2015, The parade and Rodeo will actually be held on the 4th of July, as it lands on a Saturday this year. (next year is leap year and the 4th of July will land on a Monday! So have a fun 4th of July weekend this year!)
As the 4th of July is one of Maui's most popular parades in Hawaii, locals and visitors alike will be driving from all over the Island, to attend the Rodeo and Parade.
It will be very difficult to park in Makawao town for the parade, we highly suggests parking at the Oskie Rice Arena Rodeo Grounds and taking the FREE SHUTTLE to the parade. The Maui Parade and Rodeo Shuttle runs from 7:0 0AM to9:00 AM. The Shuttle can then take you back to Rodeo Grounds beginning at 11:30 AM.
Makawao is a small town of working artists, where you can watch glassblowers, wood sculptors and painters. There are lots of unique little stores and galleries to stroll through...
Pop into one of the several restaurants like Polli's Mexican Cantina or the more health conscious Market Fresh Bistro for an early breakfast or have lunch after the parade and before heading up to the Makawao Rodeo, which will be held at the Oskie Rice Rodeo Grounds.
Makawao is one of our favorite towns to recommend for shopping, there are no mainland chains in Makawao! Makawao Towne also has a glass blowing shop as well as many eclectic shops, galleries and restaurants.

The Makawao Rodeo and Parade is one of many fun things to do in Hawaii on the 4th of July.
Fridays on Maui are also known as Friday town parties or block parties. Each Friday on Maui four different towns on the Island have block parties.
* KIHEI IS HOSTING the 4th Firdays now, and will be held at Azeka's (Mauka - volcano side). they will be closing Piikea st. from Longs to Safeway. Lots of food and entertainment!! .
The First Friday of the month is called 1st Friday in Wailuku. This is where it all began over five years ago. Main street in Wailuku is about 3 blocks of small Hawaiian boutiques, cafes and jewelry stores. The merchants of Wailuku in central Maui needed a boost to help their small businesses and sought help from the county of Maui to help co-sponsor a block party to bring locals and guest alike together. This family friendly event starts at 5pm the 1st Friday of the month. Guest filled the streets and enjoy food booths, crafts ,and amazing music from Jazz to Hawaiian. Maui Thing, one of businesses on Market St., has a stage in front of the store where local bands perform or maybe you will catch one of their many fashion shows. For more info go to: email@example.com or if you're on the mainland watch live at www.wailukucam.com
Second Friday is in Lahaina Town also known as art night in Lahaina. Lahaina will have more culture and history to share. The Baldwin home holds a candlelit tour of the property and also includes a tour of the Wo Hing museum. The story of the Hawaiian quilts is on display in front of the Baldwin House. All the Lahaina restaurants offer great pupus (appetizers), menus, and drink specials. Every park offers Hawaiian music to Rock and Roll, so make sure to bring your beach chair. Lahaina Town Action Committee works together with all the businesses to make sure this is a family friendly 5-8pm event.
Third Friday is in Makawao up country Maui. Makawao is in Maui's up country area which is also known for its rodeos and cowboys. So pull on your cowboy boots and head up country on the third Friday to enjoy music ,food and shopping with local crafters. (if it's raining....find someting else to do...... Makawao is "Up Country" and is mostly green pastures and lush tropical flowers ....which means it rains up there on a regular basis)
Fourth Friday on Maui, is held in Kihei !! From 6-9pm. Kihei is on the South end of Maui and on the 4th Fridays, Azeka's Shopping Center Mauka (mountain side) will offer Music, food and crafters'. We are all looking foward to this new event for Kihei. The first 4th friday drew over 5,000 people! We haven't hear yet how many this last one drew in January. I will share picures and video of the event soon. There was lots of fun things for children to participate in as well as lots of food trucks and vendors selling everything from frozen yogourt to plate lunches and waffles. Liek they do in Europe...there were many tables in the street itself. Tho this month it they were longer tables and not the cute 2 and 4 tops. We sat on the Grass and enjoyed our plates. (I got the Teriyaki Chicken plate and my Dad got the chow Fun which is a very popular item here in Hawaii)

"Mahalo for the discount and arranging our excursion. Most of my gang of friends had never been on a whale watching trip before and I’ve turned every one of them into whale fanatics. . I recommended you and them to several people who were interested in going whale watching. We came back to snow in Seattle and are ready to turn around and come back to paradise. We hope to return next year and this time we will stop by the shop and of course use you for another whale watching trip which is my favorite thing in the world to do. Mahalo, Vani "
