Very, very enjoyable hulu dancers and island musical groups. Lots of local prepared food. Looking in as an outsider, very welcoming and enjoyable event. Bought food from the Tuk-tuk Thai Food Truck, but there were many other above average food vendors. Loved the chicken rotisserie!

It has a farmer's market every Sunday morning with good local produce and food. There is a playground - one of only two within a 30 minutes drive (the other is in the KMC in the Park). There is a covered skate park. Free wifi.

The Volcano Farmer's Market is one of the best on the island. The market in Hilo is more of a bazaar, with multiple tiny "shops" under shelter selling everything from trinkets made in China and other faraway places to island made feather lei and lauhala...More

Hilo's Farmer Market is larger; however, Volcano's Farmer's Market radiates Aloha. I almost missed out. I was chatting with a local, Sunday morning, who was on her way to the market. An enthusiast for outdoor markets, I headed over. Although the market is small: around...More

Go early morning - 7:45-10am. If you go to the stall that sells breakfast sandwiches by two very nice gentlemen, do not pass on the $1 chai tea made with soy milk. SOOOOOOO delicious! The sandwiches are great too - sausage, egg, tomato, cheese, basil....More
