This weekend there’s an array of entertainments and diversions available. Let’s start with the Night for the Birds at the Maui Brewing Company’s brewpub in Lahaina. Tonight, June 24, from 6:00 p.m. to midnight, the pub will feature their signature brews on tap with proceeds benefiting the Maui Bird Recovery Project.

Drink up, as the pub will donate half of the night’s pint proceeds to this feathery cause. View’s events section for more information on this benefit for the birds.

Then on Saturday June 25, the Okinawan Festival will kick off at the Maui Mall. Expect song, dance, crafts and food in abundance. Fun starts at 10:00 a.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m. Take the kids. It’s free.
