    World Whale Day - Kalama Park, Kihei
    A signature event of the Maui Whale Festival, and one of Maui's most popular events for 33 years, World Whale Day is a free, all-day celebration that honors the humpback whales that come to Maui each winter.
    Hosted by the nonprofit Pacific Whale Foundation, World Whale Day begins at 9 am with Maui's Parade of Whales (see separate listing), followed by live entertainment on the main stage by top Hawai’i recording stars and children's entertainment on a second stage. The day also features great food by Maui restaurants, a children's carnival, a huge "Made on Maui" artisans fair, environmental displays and more.
