I am blessed to be the County Coordinator for the Festivals of Aloha project. But it is truly the community from Maui, Molokai, Lanai and Hana that makes this happen. We produce 20 events during the months of September and October. Our mission is to Honor our native Hawaiian culture and working to perpetuate it for generations to come.
