Day 2 is the Holo Fun Run/Walk, Kamalo Dowwinder Paddle Event, Keiki and Makua Races both paddling and running, Cultural Workshops, Live Entertainment, Trash Art Contest, and Craft and Food Booths all at the Molokai Community Health Center.

The Molokai Holokai Ho’olaule’a began in 2003 as Na Opio Hana Pa’a, a Celebration of Youth Opportunities. It involved a Maui to Molokai Challenge to bring ocean enthusiasts to Molokai. The event included community events and culminated in music and festivities at Malama Park. Over the years, the event evolved and adapted to community needs. However, Malama Park faced challenges and became unavailable. The hope is to bring Malama Park back as a venue for the event in the future.

Coming soon, registration for the following:

Molokai Holo 5 k fun run/walk

Skate Jam Session

Gorilla Ogo and Mangrove Seed Contest

Cultural Workshops
