What’s a fair without horses, cows, chickens, and rabbits? Stop by the Livestock & Poultry exhibit to see which animals take top honors. Then stay to watch one of the many events, including a horse show demonstration. While you’re there, sign up to win 100 pounds of Maui-raised beef – one lucky winner will be drawn each day! Sponsored by Maui Cattlemen’s Association and Hawaii Beef Council.
Have you heard of animal assisted therapy? The Haku Baldwin Center, a Makawao nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote therapeutic horseback riding, animal assisted therapy, and humane animal education, will present discussions on how their program utilizes therapy animals (dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, ducks and chickens) for visitation and therapy.
