As the heart of this little community, the center sponsors numerous events and activities, including concerts, crafts, cultural shows and displays. Including a small cultural museum that explains the sport of he’e holua or land sledding, where ancient Hawaiian royalty participated in a death defying sledding competition down the mountain face on a wooden sled.

The sledding took place on a track laid with stones and then covered over with slick grass and leaves. The remains of one of these sledding tracks,  Ka Holua O Kaneaka, is still visible on the mountain just south of the Keauhou Shopping Center today.
