Hiloʻs Downtown Improvement Association along with Lee Wilson of HPM (and many others), worked diligently to get Hilo in the Top 20 with a big marketing campaign using Facebook, word of mouth, and any other avenue possible to get Hiloʻs public aware. Through their efforts, along with the people of Hilo, it was a success!
Twenty cities were selected through an online voting contest and the projects will be underway until its completion in June 2014.
Mahalo to Benjamin Moore, Hiloʻs Downtown Improvement Association, Lee Wilson and all of the volunteers who helped paint Downtown Hilo, including our locationʻs front in the S. Hata Building!
