Growing up on Maui, Fourth of July was about the Makawao Rodeo and fireworks in Lahaina. I’ve missed these things over the past couple of years and it’s good to have them back.

It’s official the Lahaina Fireworks are back on this year. The fireworks show is set to start at 8:00 pm. Live music and entertainment offered at Campbell Park before the fireworks beginning at 5:00 pm.
You can watch the fireworks show from any ocean view point along Front Street as well as from some of the oceanfront restaurants or book a boat tour on one the several cruise and tour companies offering fireworks cruises from Maalaea and Lahaina Harbors. Great way to catch front row seats to sunset and the fireworks!
