This annual event is a large community celebration. With na kumu (teachers) flown in from the islands, they share their knowledge of hula, history and cultural craft with (haumana) students who come from as far away as Maryland and Canada at the Hula & Craft Workshop. Friday night heats up with the Hapa Haole Hula Competition featuring both local and national competitors. Saturday is the 5K Aloha Fun Run/Walk and all day festival where thousands gather to watch the haumana showcase what they learned, see the winners of the competition perform, and partake in the arts & craft, business and food vendors. Unit Souzou will perform at 10:30 am on Sunday, July 28th.
