Just when so many expected Kihei’s Whale Day all day event, commencing with the parade, would always be an annual event, 2018 was a rude awaking – the Parks Department would not allow it.
But now there are indications we may well have a Whale Day for 2019! No it will not be the same. First, it cannot occur at Kalama Park under the current County administration. We do not know why. Yes there will be a new administration in 2019, but much of the planning and preparation has to begin soon for an event of this magnitude, so it will have to be planned for another location in a varied format. But this year there was no event in Kihei at all. So stay tuned.
