HISTORIC KAILUA VILLAGE, HAWAII-Time to spring into action and buy local at this Sunday’s Kokua Kailua from 1 pm to 6 pm in Historic Kailua Village.
It might be cold and snowy somewhere else, but here in Historic Kailua Village everyone will enjoy the beautiful, oceanfront stroll as they shop and dine along Alii Drive. During Kokua Kailua Sundays, Alii Drive becomes a pedestrian-only walkway.
More than 100 District merchants, artists and artisans exhibit and sell unique merchandise, gift items, original art and crafts. When it’s time to dine, restaurants are ready to curb those hunger pains too.
At 4 pm, enjoy an afternoon of free Hawaiian entertainment and hula on the lawn at Hulihee Palace.
Kokua Kailua has been held monthly since 2009 and the event is sponsored by the Kailua Village Business Improvement District, Destination Kona Coast, Kailua Village Merchants Association, Hulihee Palace, West Hawaii Today and Pacific Radio Group. The program is designed to rally support for merchants and restaurants and to remind residents to shop, dine and buy local.
