The Hawaiian Serenaders at 2014 Maui Marathon

There are a couple of changes to our schedule from previous years. New this year, we will not be performing outside at the Saturday night carb luau, nor will we be at Sunday’s Finish Line because the venue has changed.

Instead, we are scheduled to perform during both days of the runners Health and Fitness Exposition that is held indoors in an air conditioned ballroom at the Westin Ka’anapali Beach Hotel – which is great! This is one of the free to public events where we look forward to performing at once a year. In fact, we arranged the “Maui Marathon Song” just for this event. Come if you can.
