Other Fun Stuff

There's a parade, games, and plenty to do for the Keiki (children.) From jungle gyms to bouncy houses, the kids will love the festival. There's also a Keiki ECO-Day Conference to teach the kids about being ecological. At night, a dinner with jazz and live comedy has occurred in the past.



Parking is kind of crazy during the day, so you can check with Pacific Whale Foundation for shuttle services, or try and find some parking up the streets near Kalama Park.


Maui Whale Watching

While in Maui during the Winter, make certain you do at least 1 whale watch boat trip. For a full list of different boats as well as photos, video, and information go to Maui Whale Watching.
