“Music is a big part of our Big Island culture,” said Scott Head, Waikoloa Beach Resort Vice President of Resort Operations.  “If you go to a backyard cookout or a graduation party in the park, there’s always entertainment, music and hula—along with lots of good food.  And that’s the spirit we love to share with our neighbors and guests.  On two Saturdays each month, you can come to Queens’ MarketPlace, have dinner, coffee or snacks, do some shopping, and just sit back and relax with a free movie or one of our mini-concerts.”
