Maui Weekly What’s Happening – August 26, 2022

Happy Aloha Friday! The breezes are cooler and it feels great!  This is my favorite time of year as things cool down and slow down before the excitement of the holiday season. Who else is counting down the days to put up Halloween decorations? Some of you may have already put them up!

This weekend, we have some great events on Maui including back in person the Emma Farden Sharpe Hula Festival. Furthermore, Peter Kater is playing the Castle Theater at the MACC. Also on the agenda, Kihei 4th Friday Town Party, an opportunity to participate in restoring the beautiful North Shore of Maui with the Sierra Club and Paddle board yoga hosted by the Fairmont Kea Lani.
