  1. Maui is never quiet on 4th of July! All those neighborhood fireworks! Love to see the aereals and miss the Wailea shows. Go Lahaina!

    1. Hi Marilyn – yeah, Lahaina will definitely be the place to be this July 4th.

      Too bad Wailea no longer has a fireworks display. It’s been a while — 3 or 4 years since they’ve had one? Who knows, maybe if we keep our fingers crossed they could still offer something this year. 🙂

  2. I want to be on Maui for the 4th! Sounds like so much fun!

    1. Janet – yes, lots of fun stuff — enough to stay busy the whole day.

  3. Can anyone tell me some things to do on the 4th in Maui. Also can you give me any details on any road races. I am taking a vacation.

    1. Jake – the above post provides a list of things to do on July 4th in Maui!

      I’m not aware of any fun runs on July 4th. If I hear of any for that date, I’ll post them here.

  4. Are you positive there are no fireworks in Wailea? Was that well researched? The best way to find out for sure is to make some contacts to the major hotels and Shops at Wailea…. The Grand Wailea is a good source to get information. I have been to may of them over the years living here on Maui

    1. Gaia — Yes, this is well researched!

      I have verified with Grand Wailea that ALL official fireworks will be in the Lahaina area. There are no reports of any fireworks in Wailea.

  5. Coming to spend the 4th in Maui from Vegas! Sounds GREAT!!! Im excited to be there with Good family, food, & FUN! SEE Ya Soon! 😀 Thanks for sharing this info!

    1. Awesome, Patty! Lot’s of great stuff going on in Maui for July 4th. Have a great time!
