Thanksgiving on Big Island

My wife & I will be spending a week during Thanksgiving on Big Island. Staying in timeshare Holua Resort. Want to know if there are things that will be very busy during that time, and if there is a suggestion for Thanksgiving dinner. Will restaurants be open for normal hours, or like in NY (for specific seatings). Also recommendations for car rentals and items that are a must to do and see.

yes- everything will be full to capacity over T-Giving week in Hawaii. reserve everything as early as possible; including flights and rental cars. there will be a multitude of T-Giving dinners to choose from - mostly lavish buffet style starting early afternoon at hotels, and sit down dinners at restaurants using normal reservation policies. the announcements for T-Giving venues will start appearing in the local papers in early november.
