MAUIS Earth Day Celebration
Posted on 17 April 2016
Big blessing to be a part of Maui's Earth day celebration, personally one of our favorite holidays out of the entire year.
"We are happy to announce that the 19th annual 2016 Maui Earth Day Festival will be held on Sunday, April 17th, 2016 at Ke‘opuolani Park Amphitheater, behind the Maui Nui Botanical Garden, across from the War Memorial Stadium, in the same favorite location as the last few years.
We are looking forward to a day of celebrating the Earth, our Aina and our Maui Ohana with two stages of live music, information booths and a silent auction. Many organizations will feature their important environmental work on Maui. There will be food booths providing delicious, healthy foods and vendors offering all kinds of eco friendly products and a healing zone with massage therapists, intuitive healers and body workers.
During lunchtime there will be a special, educational, inspirational hour from 2-3pm on the main stage with a number of speakers offering their 6 minute contribution on the theme:
“How to co-create a healthy future for Maui? Challenges and Solutions.”
At 2pm there will be a Keiki Parade starting at the keiki zone, inviting all the children to join, leading to the dome where there will be play, music and games for the children. Parents will be free to join the educational hour on main stage that way. At the end of the hour the children will parade back to the main stage where they will do a presentation of their own.
There will be a keiki zone as well as a petting zoo and horse back riding for children.
Earth Day is a great place to meet old friends and make new ones. The day promises to be fun filled as well as educational. The main stage can be enjoyed from the natural, grassy amphitheater and shade can be found under beautiful trees. The second stage can be found inside the 36 foot geodesic dome.
