Sky Lanterns in Maui

Recommended Posts

I just recently asked my WC about them, and she said that they are a huge fire hazard since they have not been getting much rain, and they tend to float everywhere which is why the islands are in debate about outlawing them.  They are trying to keep them a safe and beautiful place for all to enjoy.  I really liked the idea too, but in the end, I do not want to be the one causing a fire nor do I want to ruin it for the natives as well as the tourists that come to visit every year, because I wanted it for my wedding.  So in answer to your question, I don't think they have outlawed it from what I have read at least on Maui (Oahu it is banned as well as fireworks), but I don't know who you'll find that will permit it on their property.  I have read that they do not permit it at Olowalu and also have called a few hotels.  Sorry to be the bummer of news, but maybe you can find another idea to end your evening.

I got married in April 2012.  They are banned due to dry conditions and the chance of fire.  Sorry, I wanted to use them too, but had to eliminate that idea.
