LAHAINA – Come take a step back into Lahaina’s past as Candle Lit Tours return to the Baldwin Home Museum in Lahaina starting Friday, Sept. 4, from 5 to 8 p.m., alongside a new, free Pioneer Mill era sports exhibit.

The tours and exhibits will be held weekly in conjunction with “Friday Night is Art Night.”

The Candle Lit Tour explores the fully furnished 19th century Baldwin Home at the corner of Front and Dickenson streets, which will be illuminated by dozens of candles.

Tours are $5 per person with children 12 and under free. Each 20-minute tour is limited to five people. Sign-ups will be taken onsite.

Docents will walk each group through the home, and once they are back outside, questions will be taken.

The docents of the popular tour are excited for a return to educating the public and invite the community to take a step back into time.

A free exhibit featuring photographs of a variety of sports teams from the Pioneer Mill era will be on display on the Baldwin Home lawn.

The exhibit shows off the many memories of youth, club and community sports from the 1930s to the 1970s.

The public is invited to stroll through Historic Lahaina Town for the festive “Friday Night is Art Night.”

In conformance with Maui County regulations, masks must be worn on the candle lit tour and while looking at the outdoor exhibits.

Single-use masks and hand sanitizer will be available onsite, and social distancing will be enforced.
