Maui Fireworks on New Year's Eve
There will definitely be fireworks at
the Grand Wailea Resort in South Maui
on New Year's Eve 2009. I'm still trying
to confirm whether or not there will
be fireworks again this year in West Maui
and the East Maui town of Hana.
The fire works. The Grand Wailea will also host a
New Year's Eve party in their Bistro Molokini
that will feature live entertainment and dinner.
Kaanapali Beach Hotel New Year's Eve Party
The Kaanapali Beach Hotel in West Maui will
host several December 31, 2008 New Year's Eve
events including a four course dinner at
their Tiki Terrace Restaurant from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
a Kupanaha Magic Show Dinner Theater
from 4:30 to 7:45 p.m., and a new Year's
Eve party from 8:30 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.

Mulligans on the Blue will feature
live music by the Celtic Tigers,
an all-you-can-eat buffet dinner,

Celebrate New Year's Eve at a Maui Restaurant
Many fine dining restaurants on Maui have special
dinner celebrations on New Year's Eve.
Personal Fireworks and Firecrackers in Hawaii
Firecrackers are a strong cultural tradition in Hawaii,
but some islanders would like to see them outlawed because
they can cause injuries and fires, scare pets, and cause
air pollution that is a danger to small children, the
elderly, and people with asthma. The safest way to
enjoy fireworks on New Year's Eve in Hawaii is to
watch one of the public aerial fireworks displays.

Celebrate New Year's Eve at a Maui Hotel
Many of Maui's resorts and hotels
organize special activities and celebrations
on New Year's Eve, and usually you do not
have to be a hotel guest to participate.
Contact the activities desk of each hotel
to find out what they have planned.

This alcohol-free New Year's Eve street celebration
goes on all day and it features multiple stages
where musicians, singers, and other entertainers
perform. I am trying to find more information
