Annual hula event happening this Saturday

HULA

For the past 36 years, hula dancers have entertained the public in the largest non-competitive hula event in the state.

Since 1978 on the third Saturday in July, the annual Prince Lot Hula Festival at spectacular Moanalua Gardens has brought together premier halau hula (hula groups) from throughout the islands for a daylong celebration of hula in a non-competitive setting.

The Prince Lot Hula Festival allows thousands of island residents and visitors to experience the beauty and spirit of the Hawaiian culture.

Opening the 2014 festival will be noted Kumu Hula Robert Cazimero followed by an impressive line-up of premier halau hula who will perform both kahiko (ancient) and auana (contemporary) hula.

Dancers will perform on one of the few remaining pa hula (hula mounds) in Hawaii.

Local food and refreshments will be available for purchase throughout the day.

The 37th annual festival will be held on Saturday, July 19, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
