Summer Fun in Kona

Summer’s here! The kids are out of school, and moms and dads hopefully have a few days off. Here are a few things going on in Kona this summer.

Kona Car Show and Fitness Expo – June 25 – A lot of people have been talking about this event. It’s sure to be the biggest and best car show and expo in Kona in many years. At the Old Airport.

Kona Marathon – June 26 – About 2,000 runners will take part in one of the signature marathons in West Hawaii. Starts in Waikoloa

Fourth of July Parade – July 4 – As they say, you’re either in the parade or watching it! This promises to be a great time for Kona residents and visitors to go down to Alii Drive and enjoy a parade.

Here are a few businesses that can add some fun to your summer adventures.

Kona Splash and Bounce – If you want to entertain the neighborhood or throw the best birthday party ever, consider renting a bouncy house or water slide in Kona.

Another great way to entertain the young and the young at heart is a snorkeling trip to Kealakekua Bay. Our favorite is Sea Paradise.

For the more adventuresome, rent a kayak at Ehu and Kai and paddle across the bay.

There are, of course, many free activities for summer in Kona. The public library has many programs, and, if you are sweating at home, air conditioning! Another nice day out can be had at the Kokua Kailua Village Strolls, where they shut down a big part of Alii Drive and open the space to vendors and some musicians. The next one is July 17.
