Hold on tight, the Maui Fair is open

The 93rd Maui Fair got underway Thursday with rides and a parade down Kaahumanu Avenue. Iao Intermediate School 6th grader Jasmine Nagata, 11, (first photo, left) and 8th grader Kelsi Souza, 13, got their thrills on the Super Sizzler at the fairgrounds, the War Memorial Complex in Wailuku. Lahaina’s Zolten Poulsen (second photo), 7, holds on to little sister Alexandria, 4, while going down the Super Slide. The fair runs through Sunday night.
