Koloa Plantation Days Hapa Trail Walk

An easy morning walk along historic Hapa Trail by the Koloa Community Association. Meet your tour guides at St. Raphael’s Church – this is the island’s oldest Catholic church, so your historical tour is off to a good start.

Hapa Road Trail was once a major route connecting Koloa and the Poipu area. Today, Hapa Trail has been designated by the County of Kauai as a pedestrian and bike way.

On the walk, the guides will share many interesting stories about life in the plantation days and the Koloa Field System. They will share knowledge of archeological surveys, history and point out archeological sites and archeological preserves in the area including the extensive and ingenious ‘auwai system the Hawaiians built to irrigate the area known as the Koloa Field System. The Koloa Field System occupied most of the southern portions of na ahupua‘a of Koloa and Weliweli.

We will be having special field system expert Hal Hammatt from Cultural Surveys Hawai’i lead the hike and be available to answer questions.

The Hapa Trail Restoration Committee and other members of the Koloa Community Association have worked hard to prepare Hapa Road Trail for this year’s walk, spending mornings clearing the undergrowth so that walkers can view and experience the road in a state as close to the original road as possible.

Following the roundtrip walk refreshments will be served at St. Raphael’s Church. Participants will enjoy more chances to “talk story”. The walk and tour is offered free of charge. Hapa Trail t-shirts also available for purchase.

Koloa Plantation Days History

Kōloa Union Church (this year’s Grand Marshal in the Koloa Plantation Days Parade!) will be showing off the historic Smith Memorial Parsonage, which was built nearly a century ago (1928). It is a plantation-style home on a beautifully landscaped acre of land in the heart of Kōloa, given to the church as a parsonage for its pastors. At 2:30 p.m. Rev. Dr. Alan Akana, the current kahu (pastor) will talk about the history of the property, the house itself, and the Smith-Waterhouse families who lived on the property since 1842. The parsonage has been fully restored and doubles as an art gallery, featuring the vibrant watercolors of Kahu  Akana, an artist known for his paintings of the indigenous flowers of Hawai`i, including those found nowhere else in the world. The church will give tours of the parsonage and provide refreshments to our guests.

 

Rev. Dr. Alan Akana, a Native Hawaiian and ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, is an accomplished artist and a published author of Hawaiian history and culture. His book, The Volcano is Our Home: Nine Generations of a Hawaiian Family on Kilauea Volcano (2016), and his art (www.alanakanagallery.com) will be available for purchase, and proceeds will be donated to the parsonage restoration and maintenance fund.

 

Participants who are able are requested to park at Koloa Union Church, 3289 Poipu Road.

Koloa Plantation Days parade

Horseback and walking units, floral floats, vintage cars, and decorated vehicles are in a great hometown parade that celebrates aspects of the workers’ camps in plantation towns. Each camp had its ethnic identity, customs, foods, games and sports, music and dance. This is a festival signature event, don’t miss it!

The people walking, on decorated floats, on horseback, and in decorated vehicles will do their best to capture some aspect of plantation life. They will have colorful costumes, perhaps play music or dance, or showcase recreational activities — baseball, chicken fights, fishing, to name a few – or their ethnic heritage. Others will capture memories of the sugar era, when sugar plantations thrived and many residents worked for or with the sugar industry.

Competition for parade awards is intense and people from the resorts, businesses and community groups are very creative, so you can expect the unexpected. From costumes to decorations and choreography, they work for weeks and up to parade day to make their ideas become reality. While most of us relax and enjoy the parade, the judges seated along the parade route will intently scrutinize the units. In the afternoon, the awards for the best in each category are announced at Koloa ballpark.

Road Closures & Parking

PARADE ROUTE will commence at Koloa School, proceed north onto Po`ipu Road, turning right at the intersection of Po`ipu Road and Koloa Road and finally turning left on to Maluhia Road, finishing at the Anne Knudsen (Koloa) Ballpark.
