In Focus – Hanapepe Art Night

Every Friday, from 6 to 9 p.m., the road less traveled in Hanapepe becomes the road most visited. Art, street music, yummy food and a lot of fun contribute to a festive atmosphere in this otherwise sleepy Westside town.

Check out local artists, chat with gallery owners, listen to rock and roll, pop or classical music, and mingle with locals and visitors during a fun three-hour walk.

And come with an empty stomach, you won’t regret it.
