Big Island Hawaii News and Events

The Big Island Hawaii News and events page will lead you to our other pages where you will find current information on Hilo news, Kona news, Big Island Hawaii events, a look at some of the bands that have come from the Big Island and more.

The Big Island has nine districts and is bigger then all the other islands put together with 4,038 square miles. It takes two and a half hours to get from Kona to Hilo pretty much any way you go.

Also people in Hawaii speak a number of languages, and some even go to school to learn English as their second language:English School Los Angeles

Because of this, we have broken up the news into three sections. General Big Island of Hawaii News, Hilo News, and Kona News.

Hilo and Kona are the two main cities on the Big Island, and are also the focus of most development, commerce, politics and so forth. Because of this we have a page for Hilo News, and one for Kona News.

Within the links below you will find invitations to share any news or events you would like to share with the community. Just follow the link to the next page, follow the instructions, and build your own page on this site. You can upload photos, embed video, provide links, and so forth.

We have interactive pages for Hilo News, Kona News, and Hawaii Events.

You will find links to pages that we have written on particularly important current events, such as what happened at `Iolani Palace on April 30th 2008.

You will also find links to our pages on Big Island Music, Arts, Crafts, and whatever else worthy of being told about.
