Free entry to HVNP Veteran’s Day weekend


Hawaii Volcanoes National Park joins national parks across the country in waiving entrance fees all three days of the upcoming Veteran’s Day weekend, Nov. 9-11.

“Our nation’s veterans have sacrificed much to protect our freedom,” Park Superintendent Cindy Orlando said. “To honor the selfless service of our veterans, we invite everyone to experience the American heritage by visiting their national parks at no charge this Veteran’s Day Weekend.”

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, which has dozens of veterans among its employees and volunteers, is open 24 hours a day, every day.

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 World Heritage Site.

More than a 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 Na 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 Veteran’s Day weekend. There is no admission charged for Puukohola Heiau National Historic Site, Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park, or the Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail.
