“Family Fourth” at Waikoloa Beach Resort – July 4th

From the big splash of a thousand yellow ducks to the fantastic fireworks finale with music by the U.S. Air Force Band of the Pacific, the Family Fourth is a great way to celebrate the red, white and blue. Waikoloa Beach Resort’s free, all-day event features nonstop entertainment, balloon art, carnival games and treats for all ages, from 10:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., at Kings’ Shops, Queens’ MarketPlace and Waikoloa Bowl.

Family Fourth begins at 10:30 a.m. with opening oli (chant) and traditional hula kahiko at Kings’ Shops, followed by Hawaiian music from Komakakino. Leading up to the big race at 3 p.m., great entertainment by Micah De Aguiar with Kuleana, and Lito Arkangel. And afterward, one of Hawaii’s favorite singer-songwriters, John Cruz. (See schedule below). Special promotions will be offered from select merchants throughout the Shops.

The 26th Annual Rubber Duckie Race, is a major fundraiser for the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Hawaii (UCPA). Thousands of rubber duckies are adopted by people from near and far, who gather around Kings’ Lake to watch their ducks take the plunge, and cheer them on to the finish line. Winners reward their owners with valuable prizes. To adopt a duck, call Kings’ Shops office, at 886-8811. All proceeds benefit UCPA of Hawai‘i.

At Queens’ MarketPlace, salsa lovers from around the island bring their dancing shoes to join the Salsa Latinos at the Coronation Pavilion at 12 noon. At the same time, attendees can enjoy a fun selection of Carnival Games with prizes, amazing balloon-twist art by Balloon Monsoon, and cotton candy and popcorn stands. Tomi Isobe Blues Band, DamStr8, Lorenzo’s Army and the Larry Dupio Blues Band fill the day with music.

Doors open to Waikoloa Bowl at 4:30 p.m., for an exciting concert by Tomi Isobe Blues Band and the powerful sound of the United States Air Force Band of the Pacific, followed by a fireworks extravaganza.

From their station at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, the Band travels across the Islands, to Japan and throughout the Pacific region to perform hundreds of musical concerts each year. For Family Fourth, the Band will be playing a variety of pop, rock and R&B hits, as well as patriotic music for the fireworks extravaganza that lights up the sky at Waikoloa Bowl.

Beach mats or chairs are welcome for open lawn seating in Waikoloa Bowl. Coolers and alcoholic beverages are not permitted. This is a non-smoking event. Waikoloa Beach Resort would like to thank the Hawaii County Fire Department for co-sponsoring the community fireworks display.

The Tori Richard customer enjoys a beautiful offering of destination-inspired men’s resort wear as well as the women’s line that gave the company its illustrious start.
