Headquartered from Church Row Park and Parker Ranch Center, the Waimea Cherry Blossom Heritage Festival is planning in-person festivities from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4. Community organizers are planning a full lineup of fun in 2023 after cancellation of last year’s festival due to COVID concerns. Spend the day experiencing Japanese and multi-cultural performing arts, plus hands-on demonstrations of bonsai, traditional tea ceremony, food preparation by local chefs, and craft vendors. Festivites kick off with a blessing on the main entertainment stage behind Parker Ranch Center. Roberts Hawaii will provide a free transportation shuttle between Church Row Park and Parker Ranch Center, though walking is encouraged. The Waimea Cherry Blossom Heritage Festival is produced by the Hawai‘i County Parks and Recreation’s Culture and Education Section. The event is a community-wide effort by a dedicated team of volunteers. For more info, find updates on facebook: WaimeaCherryBlossomHeritageFestival.
