Historic Kailua Village’s monthly Kokua Kailua will be from 1 to 6 p.m. on Sunday in the heart of Kailua-Kona.
As always, say coordinators, the monthly event promises loads of fun for friends and family to enjoy that section of Alii Drive as a pedestrian-only walkway. The festive marketplace along Historic Kailua Village’s oceanfront offers everyone the opportunity to harvest all sorts of arts and crafts, gobble up tasty foods, and more.
This free event is designed to rally support for merchants and restaurants. And November’s Kokua Kailua is the ideal time and place to get a head start on one-of-a-kind holiday gift-giving items. Free entertainment is presented on the lawn at Hulihee Palace beginning at 4 p.m.
On Friday, Nov. 23, everyone is invited to the lighting of the holiday tree at 6 p.m. at Emma’s Square. Each year, this event signals the beginning of Kailua Kalikimaka in the seaside village.
The next Kokua Kailua is scheduled for Dec. 16.
Kokua Kailua Village Stroll is sponsored by the Kailua Village Business Improvement District, the Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce, Destination Kona Coast, Kailua Village Merchants Association, Hulihee Palace, West Hawaii Today and Pacific Radio Group.
