The Heritage of Aloha Ho‘olaule‘a, spanning nearly two days from Friday evening, marked the final weekend of the nine-day Waimea Town Celebration presented by the Westside Business &Professional Association.

The ho‘olaule‘a served as a hub for the numerous activities, including a softball tournament, rodeo, canoe races, the Captain Cook fun run, and more by unveiling its offerings of two tents full of vendors and an array of food booths presented by local nonprofit organizations as fundraisers for their respective missions.

Event specifics included a lineup of entertainment, the Paniolo Hat Lei Contest, an ice-cream-eating contest presented by Lisa Johnston and Super Duper II which was open to people up to 146 years old, and the Scotty’s Music’s ‘Ukulele Contest.

Overall winners of the canoe racing included Namolokama taking the coed race, Pu‘uwai Canoe Club taking the women’s race, Kaiola Canoe Club taking the men’s race, and Kilohana kane and wahine taking Na ‘Opi‘o racing.
