New Guided Tour In Makawao Town

Makawao History Museum will be hosting guided tours the first Sunday of every month through December. If after the three-month trial the tours become popular, the museum may keep them.

The tours will give participants a feel of what Makawao was like during the 1920’s-1940’s. Makawao was the center of social life for the farmers and plantation workers. Movies were only 10 cents, and friends would gather at the local barber shop for haircuts and games.

Although the buildings are now boutique shops, art galleries and restaurants, the original architectural style that makes the town so unique remains. The tours are free, however a $5 donation is suggested. Next tours will be at 10 am November 4th and December 2nd!

Tropical Storm Olivia

Visitors to Maui have been asked to not venture to Hana for the next few days as Tropical Storm Olivia makes its approach. Although the storm has weakened, possible flooding has prompted the warning as well as closed Hana Elementary and High School. Hana Elementary will have a shelter set in place for those in need.

A Tropical Storm Warning for Maui County went into effect yesterday at 5:00 pm. This means a storm is coming within 36 hours. Up to 15 inches of rain can be expected from Olivia. Hurricane Lane provided a wake up call for Maui residents to remain stocked on needed food and water as well as have an emergency plan in place. Residents should also expect delivery delays until the storm passes.

Updates for Maui County can be found on mauicounty.gov.

 

Visitors Increase For Lanai And Molokai

Lanai had a 19.1% increase in visitors for the month of July as compared to the same time last year. Spending on Lanai increased over the year a whopping 67.9% to $8.6 million.

Molokai also saw increases in visitors and expenditures. Visitors increased by 32.2% and spending increased 109.5%.

The increase in Lanai is due largely to new visitors coming and staying at the recently redone Four Seasons Resort Lanai. The resort, formally the Manele Hotel, reopened in February 2016.

Overall vistors have increased 5.3 percent statewide. Visitor spending also grew to 4.8% in July, and 9.8% for the year to July totals.
