The historic Old Kapa‘a Town gets a boost of bliss every first Saturday of the month, during its popular Art Walk. The town is lit up by live music on the sidewalks, along with local artists, vendors and food trucks. The fun starts at 5 p.m., and goes until 9 p.m., sometimes stretching a little later. Last month, even belly dancers took the streets to showcase their talents.

The Kapa‘a Art Walk was an initiative of a handful of area businesses about 10 years ago. For a few years, it was a small event, often with fire dancers. In the last few years, the art walk has grown up exponentially, and is now forever embedded in this charming town’s list of signature events.
