Fruit Lovers Fest !

Join us for a sunset fruit tasting and potluck overlooking Kealakekua Bay at One Island. Select from a variety of fruit - themed educational activities in the afternoon and evening.
Our Special Guest Presenter is Jim West, visiting from Ecuador. Jim will share information on rare and familiar tropical fruits from around the world. He is a master purveyor of tropical seeds and his last HTFG presentation was a fascinating arm chair journey into the exotic.
