Event goers will experience the Skyline Haleakala sound stage where Paula Fuga returns for her 3rd year in a row performing her soft Hawaiian sounds.  New this year is the addition of the band Malino, an amazing Maui band that performs contemporary Island rhythms.  The day’s events also include pony rides and face painting for the Keiki, native Hawaiian tree planting and restoration, food for purchase from Outrigger Pizza, shave ice and much more.

Skyline employees and volunteers have planted over 5,000 native trees since 2002 and removed invasive species in a large-scale effort to restore the native forest. Volunteers will plant over 300 native trees at this year’s event.

Last year’s event raised over $8,000 for Maui Children’s charities and volunteers worked to restore nearly one acre of native forest land.
