Lahaina wishes Hau`oli la Hanau (Happy Birthday) to the Banyan Tree with a celebration in the park. Probably the most famous landmark in Lahaina – the Banyan Tree was planted in 1873 by the Sheriff to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first Missionaries. The tree was brought from India and was only 8″ high at the time of planting. It now has a dozen main trunks and spreads over two-thirds of an acre. The Banyan Tree is noteworthy for its size. It has grown by dropping roots from its branches that then become additional trunks. Celebrated each year the third weekend in April the festivities include a birthday cake, live music, silent auction, Maui artists, and a magician.
The LahainaTown Action Committee invites golfers to its Annual Golf Classic every May at the Ka’anapali Royal Golf Course in West Maui. Golfers who participate will win the satisfaction of helping a charitable organization with a portion of the tournament proceeds benefiting Lahaina Junior Golf. A spectacular perpetual trophy for the Golf Classic was carved by the talented woodworking artist Paul Kasprzycki and will be presented at an award luncheon following the tournament. A four golfer scramble-shotgun start format where prizes, food and fun can be found at every hole. We hope you’ll join us for the Annual LahainaTown Action Committee Golf Classic – See you on the Green!
