Easter (sunrise) services near Kona

We will be spending Easter 2008 in Kailua- Kona and I'm trying to find out if there is an annual sunrise service for Easter (perhaps on the beach)

Several years ago, my father-in-law attended a sunrise service on the beach in Honolulu for Easter and said that it was amazing. Easter Sunday 2008 will also be my oldest son's 9th birthday and I want to make it special. Any suggestions would be great (dining, church services, adventures etc...)

Thanks, in advance!

I finally found some informantion on services:

There is a community wide "sonrise" interdenominational service at the old kona airport (near the beach). The service is from 6:00 AM - 7:00 AM. The founder of YWAM (youth with a mission) will be speaking, they will have the blowing of the conch shell and hula dancers.

It is a good idea to arrive 1/2 hour early because parking is limited and bring a beach chair if possible ( there will be some chairs there but this is a big event)

Local churches who participate in this event will have their own services following the community service. I spoke with Kona Baptist Church to get this information www.konabaptist.org

There is also a small service at

Hilton Waikoloa Village

Easter Sunday Service

I hope this helps.
