MAY WESTERN WEEK IN HONOKAA rides into town, Honoka'a Western Week lets the usually-quiet, former sugar cane plantation town kick up its heels and celebrate a century-old paniolo heritage. The unique cultural blend of rodeo sports, high-energy events, music, food, and education, offers all ages a whole lot of fun.

Event organizers invite the general public to "Cowboy up—slap on spurs and mosey on down to Honoka'a Town," starting along Mamane Street. Then, a week full of paniolo-style events gives cowboys and cowgirls a chance to show off their chili-cooking skills, make their own stick horses.

Mamane Street closes down for the always-popular Block Party, featuring country-style music, a sizzling steak fry fundraiser, and a fun lineup of contests and events. The Saloon Girl contest and Cowboys Got Talent contests are open to anyone willing to dress up in their best duds and strut their stuff in a talent and personality competition for the audience. Hawai'i Saddle Club Scholarship Rodeo takes place at the newly-renovated Honoka'a arena. Unique-to-Hawai'i rodeo events, like Po'o Wai'u, are in the lineup, along with bull riding, calf roping, bareback and saddle bronc events, sheep riding for the keiki and much more. In its 59-year history, the Rodeo has awarded thousands in scholarship funds to high school seniors island-wide as well as continuing education scholars. Taking place in the newly-restored arena, this year's Rodeo promises to be better than ever, with new covered bleachers, restrooms, concession stand and other improvements. Commemorative HWW buttons will be available to purchase as show of support, as well as automatic entry in the "lucky number" drawing during the Block Party. Although buttons are not required for admission, attendees receive fair warning that those without buttons at the Block Party risk being thrown into the hoosegow by roving sheriffs. (All in good fun).
