We love to celebrate, and aside from a brief respite in April and MOST of May, it’s almost always holiday season in our country. We don’t just work for the weekend, we work for holidays and vacations, and when you visit Kauai in March, you get to celebrate all three with these three holidays! And because we want to make sure you get here at the perfect time, we’ve compiled this guide to what’s going on during these special events so you can find the holiday that interests you most and schedule your trip during that timeframe!
Mardi Gras, March 5th
Fat Tuesday, Shrove Tuesday, or Mardi Gras: it doesn’t matter what you call it, all that matters is that the good times roll! And while we don’t have any official celebrations for this particular event, many of the local night spots will have drink specials, with some of them even offering the all-important beads! Rob’s Good Times Grill in Lihue is one of our favorite watering holes, and the best part about this celebration dedicated to gluttony is knowing you can sleep as late as you want the next day!
St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th
On March 17th something kind of amazing happens. In Kauai in March, at the stroke of midnight, practically everyone in the world turn’s Irish! A celebration of St. Patrick’s banishing of the snakes from Ireland in the 5thcentury turned into a 24-hour party where rivers, clothing, and beer turns green! This wonderful holiday has always held a special place in our hearts and even here in paradise we always try to find time to celebrate. Kauai may be the least populated island of the Hawaiian Island chain, but we can party with the best of them. And while our celebrations may not compare in scale to Murphy’s Bar & Grill in Honolulu, we promise you’ll still have a fabulous time when you wear your green to Nawiliwili Tavernat3488 Paena Loopin Lihue. Be sure to drink some green beer for us!
Earth Hour, March 30th
Now it’s time to scale back the celebrations with this small but so very important event. Earth Hour’s humble beginnings started in Australia all the way back in 2007 with a simple flick of the light switch, and today, countries all over the world join in the fun. At 8:30 PM, the world is encouraged to turn off all the lights and keep them off for an hour, conserving electricity and lowering light pollution. In your case, an hour of tranquility as you sit on your balcony under the glow of the moon, listening to the seas crashing against the shore sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? Doing something for the good of the Earth doesn’t have to mean you sacrifice anything; it just allows more options for feeding your soul!
