Honoka‘a Western Week Parade & Block Party May 21-29, 2017   Leave a comment


Honoka`a’s favorite party, Western Week rides into town May 21-29, 2017, celebrating the colorful, tasty, and somewhat bodacious paniolo heritage of Hamakua! From Portuguese Bean Soup to Stick Horse championships, line dancing and more, events lead up to the Paniolo Parade and Block Party on Mamane Street on Friday night, followed by the 61st Annual Hawai‘i Saddle Club Scholarship Rodeo over the weekend.

Event organizers are recruiting talent now for the Saloon Girl and Cowboys Got Talent Contests. Men and women who love the spotlight are invited to dress up in their best boots and fancy duds, and strut their stuff in a talent and personality competition on the streetside stage. There are no entry fees, and winners receive cash prizes.

“No experience required!” said contest honcho Michelle Hartman. “The more contestants we have, the merrier it is for everybody. This is definitely not a beauty pageant, and we definitely welcome all kinds of talented people. Our past winners have been folks of all ages, shapes and sizes—singers, dancers, storytellers—it’s all about letting your hair down and having some fun with the crowd.” For more information and entry forms, call Michelle at Big Island Grown, 775-9777. 

Commemorative HWW buttons will be available to purchase as show of support, as well as automatic entry in the “lucky number” drawing during the Block Party. Although buttons are not required for admission, attendees receive fair warning that those without buttons at the Block Party risk being thrown into the hoosegow by roving sheriffs. (All in good fun). 

Honoka‘a Western Week is a volunteer-driven project supported by the Honoka‘a Business Association, the Hamakua Lion’s Club, Councilwoman Valerie Poindexter, Steinlager, and others, celebrating Hamakua’s paniolo heritage and unique cultural blend. Checks payable to “Honoka?a Business Association” can be sent to P.O. Box 474, Honoka?a HI 96727, attention: Honoka‘a Western Week. For more information, follow Honoka‘a Western Week on Facebook or check out the new Honoka‘a Western Week website @ http://www.honokaawesternweek.org
