Where you'll be

We'll start from Hilo's enduring community fixture, the Mo'oheau Bandstand, then make our way through most of Downtown Hilo until we do a full loop, ending back where the tour began. We'll pass through Hilo's popular "Farmer's Market", view local architectural works listed on the National Registrar of Historic Places (some of which survived the last few tsunamis), and learn about some of Hilo's local legends.
