Earth Day Festivals and Celebrations

Here are some beautiful pictures of the Earth Day Festival held in Kahului on Sunday, April 22nd, taken by three different photographers.  The event has that Maui hippie kind of feel - as in Pa'ia town, Little Beach on a Sunday, Sufi Camp, Source Maui... Hang out on Maui long enough and you'll recognize many of these faces.

There were a number of volunteers who worked behind the scenes to make the event happen, especially Bruce and Satya Douglas of Mandala Ethnic Arts in Paia, who have organized the event for a number of years. Many people volunteered to set up, watch children, take down exhibits, make plates out of banana leaves, provide security. An event of this magnitude requires a lot of helpers.
