Fathers and families are invited to attend this year’s Annual Celebration of Fatherhood 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, June 18at the Swing Zone in Kona.

Hosted by Family Support Hawaii’s West Hawaii Fatherhood Initiative, this free event is open to the public and will be held in honor of the fathers in our community.

Attendees will enjoy free shave ice and lunch, as well as unlimited use of batting cages, miniature golf, water slides, climbing wall, and dunking booth.

Bruddha Matt and Poncho Man will provide musical entertainment, and a spectacular grand prize of two seats aboard Blue Hawaiian Helicopters’ Kohala Coast adventure tour will be awarded to a lucky father.

Activities will begin with a brief program to honor the fathers enrolled in the Na Makua Kane Maikai O Hawaii fatherhood program.

“Our fatherhood program has gained momentum in the past seven years and continues providing a unique opportunity for men to strengthen their role as fathers,” says Kauila Ho, fatherhood specialist. “Even in these trying times, we have been able to provide our services free of charge to all who need them.”
