Happy New Year Hawaii
Kicking Off the New Year in Paradise

Hawaii likes to kick off the New Year with a bang—literally. Several islands have major firework shows either at the stroke of midnight or earlier in the evening. Locals have also been known to set off small fireworks at home, purchased from valid retailers, or larger displays with a permit.

If you’re visiting the Islands to ring in the New Year, or if you’re local and don’t want to celebrate at home, here are some of the different activities available:
Big Island: 
Various hotels and resorts on Hawaii Island will be hosting large parties to celebrate 2016. Resorts such as Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows, Hilton Waikaloa Village, and the Fairmont Orchid, to name a few, will all have events to bid farewell to 2015. Check the web for specific event details.

Kauai is known as the “Garden Island” for its lush landscapes and relaxed feel. New Year’s Eve is one of the annual events where fireworks and revelry vanquish peaceful quiet. Head down to Poipu Beach on Kauai’s South Shore for a fireworks display from 5-10 p.m.

Not only does Maui have multiple fireworks shows, it also has several boating companies that will take guests out on the water for an evening cruise and fireworks display. Check out the Pacific Whale Foundation for a cocktail cruise out of Lahaina. You can also enjoy the fireworks beachside in Lahaina and Wailea.

Hawaii’s most populous island has something for everyone on New Year’s Eve. Fireworks will be visible in Waikiki and downtown at Aloha Tower. Aloha Tower will host the Party of the Year with fireworks, food trucks, various DJ’s and live musical performers. Waikiki restaurants and hotels will also have individual parties and displays. If you’re interested in seeing the displays from the quiet of the sea, there are also plenty of boating companies offering New Year’s Eve fireworks cruises.
