Princess Ka'iulani Festival


What a busy weekend on the Valley Isle! Today, the Second Annual Princess Ka'iulani Festival was held at the upcountry Haleakala Waldorf School.

This sweet festival is one of my favorite, celebrating the beautiful princess of a Scottish father and a Hawaiian mother. Much literature and stunning photographs are available on the life and story of this remarkable young woman lovingly known as the Peacock Princess.

It has been a year since I started blogging, and I did share this great festival last year. This year I am posting some photos of the hula dancers from our Kula halau performing today. Today's performances brought a little tear to my eye. From the keiki ( children) to the tutus (grandmas), these dancers put their hearts into their homage to Princess Ka'iulani.

Great music by Hapa and the Isle of Maui Pipe Band completed the afternoon....gotta love Maui.

More great events will top off the weekend with a free Ukulele Festival at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center. Everybody brings beach chairs and relaxes to sweet Hawaiian music on a sunny afternoon.

Maui no ka oi, with all the rich diverse offerings for residents and visitors!
For all the up to date information on Maui happenings, keep your eyes on Maui

Here's to enjoying your community, and ours.

Aloha for now,
