It’s a three-day holiday weekend, but celebrations mean no alcohol at the Kaneohe sandbar.
That rule was put into place in 2012. It’s supposed to sunset in September but that could change.
The Department of Land and Natural Resources will hold a public meeting Tuesday to talk about making the alcohol ban permanent.
Meghan Statts of the DLNR said current prohibitions include the possession and consumption of alcohol, and intoxication, during activities at the sandbar on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, as well as the 4th of July if it falls on a weekend.
It’s the department’s intention to keep the ban in place due to reports of fights during previous holiday celebrations there.
The meeting takes place at 6 p.m. at the Heeia Elementary School.
