The Hawai‘i County Department of Parks and Recreation has temporarily closed Hilo’s Mo‘oheau Bandstand for extensive renovation starting Monday, Aug. 15.

It is estimated that the project should be completed at the end November 2016 to allow for structural and architectural repairs as well as painting, lighting and electrical upgrades.

To protect park patrons from construction hazards, barricades will be erected to restrict access to the bandstand throughout the project.

During construction, monthly Hawai‘i County Band concerts will be moved to the Aupuni Center Conference Room located at 101 Pauahi St.

The noontime performances will remain as scheduled on the following Saturdays: Sept. 10; Oct. 1; Nov. 12; and Dec. 3.

The Department of Parks and Recreation apologizes for any inconvenience the temporary closure may cause and thanks park patrons for their understanding while it works to improve Mo‘oheau Bandstand.
