Here are some good choices for you. Please feel free to add information in the comments.

Inspirational Moonlight Labyrinth Walk 6pm – 8pm Kealia Beach – Just North of Kapaa
Unity Kauai is hosting this annual event. Unity Kauai is a church but this is not a religious event. Lit by tiki torches and luminaries, a 60-foot, 7-circle traditional Hopi labyrinth is dug into the shore of Kealia Beach. “We guide people in and encourage them to think about the things they are ready to release in their lives,” Unity of Kaua‘i Minster Jasmine Schaeffer said. “As they walk out they think about things they are ready to bring in.” Meditative music by Omashar.
