The 39th annual Sacred Hearts Bazaar will host a ton of food, music and games Friday and Saturday at the school campus on the corner of Wainee and Dickenson streets in Lahaina.
Hours are 4 to 10 p.m. both evenings for this highly anticipated family event. Admission is free. Script may be purchased for bazaar highlights including rides, food and attractions.
"The bazaar is West Maui's prime spring event that draws thousands of people to come together to raise money for student education programs," said Lisa Donlon, parent and one of the 2011 bazaar chairwomen. "There is just so much to do and it's fun for everyone."
Keiki may enjoy games such as the Iron Man bouncer along with kid-friendly foods such as shave ice.

Back by popular demand will be the beer garden sponsored by Maui Brewing Co. Located next to the entertainment stage and open throughout the bazaar, it's a chance for the adults to sip 100 percent made-on-Maui beer.
As usual, the food booths will feature must-have bazaar favorites such as malasadas, cotton candy, shave ice and ice cream.
A couple of West Maui's most popular restaurants will also be on hand serving signature items. They are Leilani's on the Beach in Kaanapali and Outback Steak House in Lahaina.
In addition, traditional plate lunches round out the culinary offerings. Choose from savory pork-n-peas, shoyu chicken, chow fun or kalua pork plates. All will be sold for under $10.
In the various classrooms, there will be massages, face painting, novelties, plant sales, photo galleries and silent auctions.
Local entertainers will perform throughout. There will also be Miniature Horse Petting Zoo open from 6 to 8 p.m. Keiki will be able to see, pet, brush and play with the miniature horses in the Early Learning Center Play Yard.
There will be games galore for all ages from Saber Tooth to Pirates Plunder.
