Hawaiian Sunset Saturday happens on the last Saturday of every month. The public is invited to gather at Coconut Grove Marketplace on Ali‘i Drive from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. to enjoy the Kona sunset with live Hawaiian music and hula performed by dancers of Halau Ka‘eaikahelelani.

Attendees are advised to bring a lawn chair or beach mat to enjoy the free outdoor event. Parking is available for the event. Coolers are not permitted.

The weekly Tuesday Trot 5K Fun Run and Walk is a free Blue Zones Project initiative coordinated by Big Island Running Company. The non-competitive, free fitness event begins at the Company’s Ali‘i Drive store in the Coconut Grove Marketplace at 5 p.m.
