Waikoloa 4th of July Information

Every year, Queens’ MarketPlace brings out the child in everyone, with its “Family Fourth” celebration in Waikoloa Beach Resort.  Kids’ games, rides and activities, food booths, live entertainment and nonstop fun take place Wednesday, July 4, from 11 a.m.-9:30 p.m. at the Coronation Pavilion and throughout the shopping center.  And, capping off the festivities, there is a spectacular grand finale of fireworks to the rock & roll beat of “Johnny Shot” at the Waikoloa Bowl at Queens’ Gardens.

Many of the day’s events are free or nominal charge to support The Food Basket’s efforts to feed Hawai‘i Island families.  A collection point for non-perishable food items and monetary donations will be available throughout the day,

“Family Fourth” highlights include the colorful Zoo Choo train rides around Queens’ MarketPlace, balloon sculpting by Ballon Monsoon, carnival games with prizes, face-painting, and fun festival food like cotton candy and popcorn.  Continuous live musical entertainment features something for every music-lover:  jazz, salsa, island style and more.

And when the sun goes down, the sky lights up with Fourth of July fireworks—and Waikoloa Bowl fills with the big sound of rock & roll.  First up, “Don’t Sit Down,” a four-piece retro rock band that specializes in the 60’s, including go-go girls.  Then, leading into the fireworks extravaganza, the explosive classic rock of “Johnny Shot.”  A high-energy band in demand for conventions and dance venues, “Johnny Shot” delivers solid music from Elvis Presley and the Beatles to Johnny Cash and The Clash that makes audiences island-wide want to get up and dance.   After the fireworks, wind down and relax with “Full Circle” at the Queens’ MarketPlace Coronation Pavilion.

Admission is free, and families are invited to come early, beat the crowd, enjoy the day and cap off the “Family Fourth” with a bang.  Beach mats or chairs are welcome for open lawn seating, however coolers, alcoholic beverages and smoking are not permitted.  Waikoloa Beach Resort would like to thank the Hawaii County Fire Department for co-sponsoring the community fireworks display.
