Hilo's First Friday Night Market
Hilo and the surrounding communities on the windward side of the Big Island are wealthy in art and inspired small creative businesses. To absorb the artsy atmosphere and celebrate an Aloha Friday, make your way to downtown Hilo where the town’s Downtown Improvement Association hosts the First Friday Night Market to bring local artisans and the community together with live music, entertainment, and a lively venue for art, food, and street vendors. It’s also a great place to peruse and procure an island-inspired painting, or some creative encouragement. Slate a Friday evening in your itinerary to experience some of Hilo’s art and aloha spirit.
