May in West Hawaii is classified as a “shoulder month” as we experience a lull in tourism until it picks back up again when kids get out of school in June. Less crowds means more of an opportunity to attend a variety of cultural, local and musical events this month! New to the LUVA Real Estate calendar this month is the Pacific and Asian Cultural Fest with food tasting and a fashion show to showcase culture. Also, if you enjoy exercise AND food, check out the Charity Walk in Waikoloa, as this event features the top resorts offering up their tasty cuisine for the walkers who help support a variety of local charities. Happy May!
