Free entry to HVNP for Veterans Day weekend


Hawaii Volcanoes National Park joins all 398 national park units across the country in waiving entrance fees for the upcoming Veterans Day weekend, Nov. 10-12.

“We are indebted to the sacrifices our veterans have made for our country’s freedom and heritage,” Park Superintendent Cindy Orlando said. “The National Park Service invites all veterans to reconnect with their country through their national parks this weekend, and throughout the year.”

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, which counts dozens of veterans among its employees and volunteers, is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The park offers more than 150 miles of hiking trails and many opportunities to appreciate the volcanic landscape, the pristine native environment and the Hawaiian culture that define this magnificent World Heritage Site.

More than one dozen free interpretive programs are offered daily, and special events, including Ike Hana Noeau cultural workshops, After Dark in the Park presentations, hula kahiko performances, and Nā Leo Manu “Heavenly Voices” concerts, are ongoing.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is one of five national park units on the Island of Hawaii. Puuhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park is also free of charge Veterans Day weekend.

There is no admission at Puukohola Heiau National Historic Site, Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park, or along the Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail.
