The moon was a symbolic celestial body for Native Hawaiians. Mahina (the moon) phases often determined Hawaiian practices, such as when to plant crops. Waimea Valley, housing an impressive botanical garden, honors Mahina and its significance to Hawaiian culture through Moon Walks starting in April 2018.
Regular Moon Walk admission is $10. Visitors can enter through admissions into the Valley to the waterfall between 8-8:30 p.m. and must exit the Valley by 10 p.m. A dinner buffet catered by Ke Nui Kitchen at The Proud Peacock is offered at 6 p.m. Dinner is $34.95 for adults and $17.50 for children (ages 4-12). Purchase of the buffet dinner includes a free admission to the Moon Walk.
