Boy Scout Makahiki Saturday
Hilo’s annual Boy Scout Makahiki is scheduled for Saturday from 9 a.m. -1 p.m. at the Edith Kanaka‘ole Multipurpose Stadium.
Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and adult leaders will be on hand to demonstrate scouting skills, outdoor cooking and Cub Scout programs. The traditional Grand March will begin at 9 a.m.
The annual Makahiki is the oldest Boy Scout show and has been presented continuously for over 100 years. Cub Scouts (grades 1-5) will be participating in the area finals for both the Sailboat Regatta and the always-popular Pinewood Derby.
Awards will be presented to the winners at 12:30 p.m.
Free game booths manned by scouts will also be set up for scouts and guests to enjoy.
Boy Scouts (grades 6-12) will be cooking up all kinds of onolicious treats in their outdoor cooking demonstrations. Dutch oven cooking using iron pots and charcoal briquets will be baking up main dishes and desserts. And tasting is part of the fun.
A “Join Scouting” booth will be set up for non-scouters to get information about packs and troops and their meeting times and locations. Other community booths will also be on hand.
Also on display will be a booth featuring the fun of Cub Scout Day Camp, coming up early in June. At the camp, registered Cub Scouts will enjoy three days of crafts, swimming, BB gun shooting and archery.
