Uncle Willie K to Perform at Makawao Third Friday
In celebration of Thanksgiving, the theme of this month’s Makawao Third Friday is Makawao Gives Thanks. Taking place on Friday, Nov. 16, 2018, from 6:00 p.m. to 9 p.m., Makawao Third Friday features live entertainment, food, artists and lots of local shopping.
This month, Makawao is thrilled to welcome Maui’s own amazing Hawaiian guitar virtuoso, Uncle Willie K. Hawaiian phenomenon Willie K is undoubtedly the only artist in the world who can go into an Irish pub in the middle of Maui and play anything from indigenous acoustic Hawaiian music to jazz, reggae, rock, country, opera—and not only get away with it but leave everyone within earshot slack-jawed in astonishment.
Additional entertainers include Benny Uyetake, Get Up and Dance, magician Timothy Wenk and more. There is also a keiki zone in the Kamoda Bakery parking lot.
Makawao Third Friday is a rain-or-shine free community event with Baldwin Avenue closed from the top of Makawao Avenue to Brewer Street. Free parking is available at the Makawao Municipal Parking Lot on Makawao Avenue (next to the library), the Makawao Base yard (across from St. Joseph’s Church) and two parking lots on Brewer Road.
