The Lahaina Bars and Restaurants will all be open and hoping for our business, most will not be accepting reservations for dinner. Most stores and galleries in Lahaina will be closed for the evening. (The only night of the year the Lahaina shops close; not even for Christmas or New Years!)
Day time is family fun, by dark….wll lets just say it can get wild and crazy! by 9:30Pm is it standing room only in the streets and you can barely move. Thank goodness for cell phones now days! Before cell phones you had to have a meeting place, because the chance of losing sight of your friends was quite good. Mind i am barely 5 ft tall, I am sure my brother at 6’2″ does not have the same problem
