Find Your Peace at Moku ‘Ola
by Kristin Hashimoto
Get your peace on where coconut trees sway and warriors of the past used to take refuge.
This Saturday, October 6, at 10 a.m., Moku ‘Ola, otherwise known as Coconut Island, will be the site of live music, games, entertainment, demonstrations, food booths, crafts, shopping and more.
This annual event is in its third year. Last year, hundreds of people came to see, eat and experience a peaceful day at the park.
This year, soulful Hawaiian music crooner John Cruz, will headline the entertainment around noon.
Expect ‘ono food from diverse cultures, intriguing music and dancing, informational booths and activities for the keiki.
Those that know the area might already feel that headache coming on from lack of promising parking options.
Attendees are encouraged to wear comfy shoes and park along Banyan Drive. Avoid the hotel parking lots and carpool.
Moku ‘Ola is located on Banyan Drive, adjacent to the Queen Liliuokalani Gardens in Hilo. Admission is free to this family friendly, drug and alcohol free event.
