If you’re wondering what’s going on this weekend and where you should go, check out this week’s picks for entertainment. This Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Wailuku and Kahului is where you want to be.

First Friday in Wailuku makes its monthly appearance with live music, street vendors and local food. Shops will be open for people to peruse and wander in and out of all night. The fun begins around 5:30 p.m., but you may want to arrive a little early, as parking can be problematic. This free event is family friendly.

On Saturday August 6, The Throwdowns will have their CD release party at the Yokouchi Pavillion at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center. Crooner Lily Meola, songstress Kimie Miner, Moth, Reggae-vibin’ Marty Dread and more will be helping the Throwdowns celebrate their debut album, Legs of Our Own. The gates open at 5 p.m., and the entertainment begins around 6 p.m. Tickets are $25 day of the party and $20 in advance. Visit www.mauiarts.org to get your tickets, or call 808-242-7469.
