Description

Pearlridge Center will celebrate Aloha Festivals with a variety of activities, demonstrations and continuous stage performances by participating keiki (children’s) groups and hula halau (schools). The 2017 Aloha Festivals Royal Court will make a special appearance. Visit www.pearlridgeonline.com. The 2017 Aloha Festivals celebrates the love for Hawaii’s children and future with “He Lei Aloha Ke Keiki – Children Are Our Garland of Love.” Throughout olelo noeau (Hawaiian proverbs) there are poetic references to children as pua (flower) and lei (garland) for their promise and need for nurturing in order for them to thrive. The entire ohana (family) from grandparents to keiki (children) are invited to create enduring memories and experiences of Hawaii’s rich cultural history and traditions during the 2017 Aloha Festivals in September. Aloha Festivals was first held in 1946 as Aloha Week, and over the past seven decades has become a celebration of Hawaiian culture, integrating the traditions and cultures of the Islands through music, dance, cuisine and art. All festivities are coordinated by a volunteer board of directors. Aloha Festivals is funded by the Hawaii Tourism Authority, corporate and private sponsorships, and sales of Aloha Festivals ribbons and merchandise.
