There are a few things you can expect in July in West Hawaii: The Kailua Kona 4th of July parade, the Rubber Duckie Race in Waikoloa, the Turtle Independence Day at the Mauna Lani, and the horse races and rodeo at Parker Ranch, all on the 4th of July! Later in the month, the Mango Festival celebrates one of Hawaii’s favorite fruits and is holding a benefit concert for the Puna lava evacuees and animals. The days are longer, the ocean is warm, and there is plenty to see and do all over the island if you are visiting.
LUVA Vacation Rentals also reminds you that we are busily booking vacation homes for Kona Ironman, coming up on October 13th, now. See what is still available on our website!
Here are some events to plan around:
June is a time for families to come to Hawaii Island and enjoy summer vacation and long days at the beach and pool. For residents of West Hawaii, we are still trying to find a new normal of an active lava flow in Puna that now looks as if it will be a long lasting volcanic vent, which we are watching on the nightly news or in the newspaper as to what long term impacts it will have to the island.
The good news is that we are 100 miles from the lava activity, donation drives are in full swing in West Hawaii to help the displaced residents of Puna and LUVA Real Estate agents and friends are working to let people know that Hawaii is open for business. We hope you will come out and support these local events and our local vendors and businesses. Mahalo!
Do you love Hawaiian culture, the amazing food and coffee we grow here and a chance to give back to this amazing community we call home? Lots to see, do, eat, drink, taste, learn and enjoy this month on Hawaii Island. LUVA Real Estate also wants to let you know that something VERY interesting is currently happening in Volcanoes National Park if you are on island now and over the next few weeks. The lava lake at Halemaumau Crater is filling with lava and the nightly glow is the strongest it has been since the caldera opened up ten years ago! So, if you want to see the lava from a safe distance with easy access, go to the Jagger Museum at the park and put that on your things to do list in May, too!
What: HOKULEA VOYAGING CANOE TOUR
Spring time in West Hawaii is the beginning of our “shoulder season” where many of the snow birds and Spring Break crowds diminish and there seems to be a collective sigh from the island residents as parking becomes available at the beaches again and the restaurants have open seating again! LUVA Real Estate encourages those of you who like to enjoy the culture of the island and more room on the roads and beach parks to enjoy April! This month leads with the world renown Merrie Monarch Festival. If you love watching hula, costumes and tradition, it is all here THIS week! And if you love chocolate AND coffee, this is your month! Read on for more fun!
