The beautiful weather of Hawaii keeps visitors busy.   Nobody is thinking about the cold weather back home and they are free to enjoy every minute of every activity that Hawaii has to offer.

 

The NFL Pro Bowl is a staple February event in Hawaii.   The Pro Bowl is held there every year prior to the SuperBowl.   This is your chance to watch the AFC take on the NFC and see some of the leagues best players working together on the same teams.   Pro Bowl coaches, the players themselves and the fans vote for players.   Each groupís ballots count for one third of the votes.   There are also replacements voted should a selected player be unable to play due to injuries.   Before 1995, only the coaches were allowed to vote for Pro Bowl selections.  

 

The Run for the Whales is a 5K and 10K Fun Run held in Makena and Wailea.   The race is for families and children to participate in.   The proceeds from the race go to benefit the Pacific Whale Foundation.

 

The Annual Hilo Chinese New Years Festival is a February event that transforms Kalakaua Park into a mini-Chinatown.   Asian products and tents with food fill the park with the sounds and smells of China.   There are Lion Dancers offering blessings to businesses and visitors as the make their way to the park and the festival opens with firecrackers.   There are also several performances, displays and special guests that show what an influence China has had on the culture and people of Hawaii.

 

Cultural Demonstration Programs are held at the Puukohola Heiau National Historic.   The demonstrations include Hawaiian crafts and other programs throughout the month.   There are also footpaths, guided and self-guided tours, exhibits, interpretive talks and bird watching.

 

The Waimea Cherry Blossom Heritage Festival is an annual event that features the blooming of the cherry trees and the Japanese tradition of viewing them called hanami.   There are several activities including performers from Japan, demonstrations of bonsai, origami, sumie, calligraphy and tea ceremonies.   There is also a large craft fair and mochi pounding at the Parker Ranch Center.   Activities for the event spread from Church Row Park to the Parker Ranch Historic Homes on Momalahoa Highway 90.  

 

The Annual Waimea Town Celebration Ukulele Contest features some of the best amateur strummers.   This event takes place on the main stage at the Waimea Town Celebration.
