King Kamehameha Day Celebration Parade ~ Saturday June 8th!

Join us on Saturday morning, June 8, 2019, for the annual King Kamehameha Day Celebration Parade in Historic Kailua Village.

Throughout the day, the community of West Hawai‘i will gather to honor the great ali‘i, King Kamehameha I, who established the first capital of the united Hawaiian Kingdom here in Kailua-Kona at Kamakahonu. This year’s parade theme is Ka Mo‘i Kamehameha Nui, translated: “Kamehameha, the Sovereign Ruler of All.”

Adorned in the flowers and colors of the Hawaiian Islands, regal Pa‘u Rider Logopa‘u riders on horseback will represent each of the eight islands, led by their respective princesses and the pa‘u queen. The floral parade will also feature hula halau, equestrian units, marching bands, a horse-drawn carriage and more.

After the parade, enjoy a ho‘olaule‘a (music and art festival) at Hulihe‘e Palace, including a free concert featuring top Hawaiian recording artists. Then take time to visit the many shops, galleries and historic landmarks of Historic Kailua Village.

The Kona Orchid Society (KOS) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to educating our members and the public about the collection, culture, and appreciation of orchids.  Since 1985, we have promoted fellowship among orchid enthusiasts. Our members include both individual hobbyists and commercial growers, all brought together by our common interest.

KOS usually meets at 6:00PM on the first Friday of the month.

The meeting is held at the Makua Lani Academy Bridge House Building at 74-4966 Kealakaa St., off Palani Road in Kailua-Kona.   Our membership meetings are open to the public and we welcome anyone interested in joining us.  See our schedule of upcoming events for further information.  If you have an interest in becoming a member, see our membership page.

We have wonderful meetings where we learn from many orchid experts about how to successfully grow our orchids.  After sharing a pot luck meal and listening to our guest speakers we have a time for Show and Tell.  People bring their blooming orchids and share info about what elevation they live at and the type of orchid.  It is really amazing to see the beautiful orchids people are growing!  We end with an orchid raffle.  It is really fun.  

Each year on Mother’s Day weekend (Friday and Saturday), we hold our Annual Orchid Show and Sale in the pavilion at the Old Kona Airport in Kailua-Kona. If you are in the Kailua-Kona area, you won’t want to miss it.

Admission is FREE to everyone.

Hope to see you there!

Warm Aloha~

24th Annual Kona Brewers Festival~March 9, 2019!

Enjoy delicious US and Hawaii made craft beesr along with some of the very best Hawaii Island style cuisine. It’ll include brew tasting, sampling of gourmet cuisine, entertainment, trash fashion show, musical groups, homebrew competition, 5k / 10k and much more.

Nestled against Kamakahonu Bay, and overlooking theʻAhuʻena heiau, the Kona Brewer’s Festival offers an experience unique to Hawaii Island.

Chefs from 36 of the Big Island’s top restaurants serve sweet and savory tastes of island-style food, from fresh fish and barbecued meats to decadent desserts. A hula and blessing kick off the event. A stage with live music entertains festival-goers throughout the day. The annual Trash Fashion Show, designed to raise environmental awareness, shows off attire made entirely from recycled material.

Since its humble beginning in 1996 to celebrate the creation of the Kona Brewing Company, the festival’s mission is raise funds and awareness for nonprofit organizations which contribute to the well being of Hawaii’s youth, environmental conservation, and cultural traditions through the celebration of handcrafted brews and local cuisine in a sustainable community gathering on the Island of Hawaii.

KAHULANUI at Gertrude’s Jazz Bar in Kona~Sunday December 23rd!   Leave a comment

KAHULANUI at Gertrude’s Jazz Bar in Kona~Sunday December 23rd!

Na Hoku Award winning Kahulanui (The Big Dance) is an inspiration passed down three generations from Grandfather Robert Kahulanui Naipo, to Dad Rodgers L.L. Naipo Sr., to Grandson and Kahulanui band leader, Lolena Naipo, Jr.

Lolena remembers stories of his Grandfather who was a member of the Royal Hawaiian Band during an era when horns and drums were a part of Hawaiian music.

Throughout Hawaii in the 1920s and 1930s, one could find orchestras playing Hawaiian Swing and the house would be jumping. Kahulanui borrowed from these influences and performs classic Hawaiian songs in a syncopated style making Hawaiian Swing vibrant and alive in Hawaii today.

“Youve never heard a beat quite like this, either in Hawaii or in Harlem. Kahulanui is a ferocious blast of swinging jazz. The sun may be hot, but the music is hotter”. – The Wall Street Journal July 2, 2015

DETAILS:

▪️Date: 12/23/2018 (Sunday)

▪️Address: Gertrude’s Jazz Bar, 75-5699 Alii Drive, Kailua Kona, HI
