In the spirit of past Aloha Festivals, the Hilo Shopping Center again will offer its annual Celebration of Aloha Craft Fair on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Sept. 19-21. The craft fair will be open from from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. the first two days and 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday.
Big Island crafters will again be offering handcrafted sewn items, jewelry, glass, photography, soaps and lotions and much more. The public is invited to discover locally made treasures inside the main mall and outside on the covered sidewalk.
One of the first craft fairs in Hilo scheduled during the old Aloha Week season, it provides a comfortable venue for local crafters who have been coming back for years.
“Mahalo to the shopping center management for welcoming us back, year after year,” said Marcia Prose, craft fair coordinator. “Customers come back to shop their favorite vendors, it’s almost like a reunion.”
“Come discover the new items our vendors are offering this year,” said Prose. “And of course, there is no admission fee to the craft fair. Come back every day if you want.
