Sacred Hearts Bazaar to feature fun new activities
LAHAINA – The 45th annual Sacred Hearts Bazaar will take place on Friday, April 7, and Saturday, April 8, from 4 to 10 p.m. at the school campus located on the corner of Wainee and Dickenson streets in Lahaina.
This is an exciting year at the bazaar! Attendees will find their old favorites along with some fun new activities.
The Food Court will include beloved local bazaar staples; restaurant-sponsored booths from Leilani’s on the Beach, Roundtable Pizza and Paradise Grill; and the Kona Ice Shaved Ice Truck.
Fresh hot malasadas will be served all night long, and the Kountry Kitchen will be open with all kinds of local treats like pickled mango, local baked breads, sweet shoppe, fruits and vegetables, and much more.
There are endless things to do with your keiki at the bazaar, including carnival booths with prizes, face painting and airbrush tattoos, jumpy castles and a big slide. An all-new Braid Bar will give kids cool braids and hair feathers.
Adopt-a-Pet is a new activity where kids can adopt a stuffed animal, decorate its house and accessories, participate in pet care activities and visit with the Maui Humane Society.
The Novelty Store and Magic Ink are always keiki favorites, along with fun carnival inflatables. The Preschool Play Zone is an area for the little ones with an Animal Petting Farm, bouncy house and games just for them.
Fun activities for all ages include Maui Laser Tag, Maui Paint Ball, and Maui Spider Jump. A mobile glow stick and toy vendor will provide a lot of Lahaina night fun!
Get your favorite West Maui “celebrities” wet at the new Dunk a Bucket booth. School principals, coaches, chefs and favorite members of our community will step forward for this fun reverse dunk tank. Check out Facebook for the lineup.
Adults can escape the crowd into the Wellness Room with a chiropractic adjustment and massage, and visit other West Side wellness businesses.
Watch the amazing entertainment from the Beer and Wine Garden, sponsored by Kohola Brewery, while sipping craft beer. On Friday night, enjoy shopping with local craft vendors in front of the church and take home a beautiful plant from the plant sale.
Come to the bazaar to check out the amazing entertainment lineup, featuring keiki performers each night from 4 to 7 p.m. followed by headliners as it gets dark. Radio emcees Mackie Mac and Kaena Brown, along with Deejays KCK and Big Mike, will keep the night moving.
Friday night headliners include the hula company Manutea Nui’E, 3 Pounds of Kalo, and HHB. Saturday night will feature “Burn’n Love,” Matagi, and Maoli. See the Sacred Hearts School Bazaar Facebook page for times and details of headliners and keiki performers.
The Annual Living Legend Award will be presented on Saturday evening honoring Joan McKelvey for her contributions to the school and community. A fitting honor, as she helped start the bazaar in 1972 to rebuild Sacred Hearts School after it was destroyed by fire.
Admission to the event is free; scrips are available to purchase for food and games.
