New Year’s Day 2017, hundreds of hikers will make the one-mile hike to the Makapuu Lighthouse overlook at the Kaiwi State Scenic Shoreline for the annual First Day Hike. These events, held in state parks around the country encourage people to get out and use their parks and to greet the New Year with some outdoor activity and exercise. Hawai‘i’s annual hike is considered one of the best attended and again features a pule, a pu, and taiko drummers. Weather conditions permitting, participants will also be greeted with a spectacular sunrise over the Pacific.
