Mayor Michael Victorino has given the green light for the resumption of Maui County’s Friday Town Parties, in which five cities take turns throwing community-minded, kid-friendly street parties on Friday evenings each month. The events have been canceled the past two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic and new sponsors will be needed to get them going again. “There is no specific date set to open them,” says Tokie Ogawa, Business Development Specialist with the Office of Economic Development (OED), “but some towns are working very hard to bring them back.” When the parties are up and running, Wailuku hosts First Fridays, followed by Lahaina, Makawao, and Kihei, with Lana’i City hosting Fifth Fridays. If you would like to help sponsor or organize your town’s event, contact the OED at (808) 270-7710, or email economic.development@mauicounty.gov.
