    Hula Show/Kapialani Park

    Hula Show

    This can be real fun for some and seem like a tourist trap to others. The good news for either type is that the event is free. The show is held in the park and features anything from hula dancing to the Hawaiian grannies singing while playing their instruments. I did get the impression that the performers do enjoy doing the show, so that is a definite positive if you do go see it. Also, if you like the possibility of interacting with the performers, then you might want to sit near the front--you just might get your wish.

    Waiting Their Turn

    If you're in Honolulu in September, be sure and catch the Aloha Festival, which generally spans a week. The Aloha Festival features hula dancers, local cuisine, local music, leis, all types of vendors, etc. The Waikiki Ho'olaule'a includes several stages, plenty of music, and food and crafts booths.

    Keiki Hula (Kids Hula)

    by Hexepatty Updated Sep 22, 2003

    And all this hula for only $5.00! It's a FULL day of Hula, Folks! I think the attention to detail and the elegant costumes make this once again, one of the top hula contests. The Merrie Monarch of course is the most popular, naturally. But the Merrie Monarch focuses on all groups. I like the Keiki Hula cuz it just cuts to the chase and focues on the Keiki. These girls in the lovely white gowns really are great dancers, too!!!

    Keiki Hula Festival Every end...

    Keiki Hula Festival Every end of July!
    Seeing adorable children dance hula literally brings tears to my eyes! Sure, there are other hula competitions, the Merrie Monarch being the most popular, naturally. But the Merrie Monarch focuses on all groups. I like the Keiki Hula cuz it just cuts to the chase and focues on the Keiki. It is tyically held in a nice air con building and is very reasonably priced!!!

    These young dancers were a magnifent sight. Would take no effort at all to think they have been doing this all their lives.
    If I had the opportunity to watch this show again, I would not miss it for the world..

    Keiki Hula Show

    Hula Shows are a must see in Hawaii... They are very much a part of the Spirit of this wonderful place.
    The Keiki hula competition is something I will always remember. It stirred me right to the core of my Soul.

    Pleasant Hawaiian Hula Show (formally the Kodak Hula Show)
    It's free and you get to see heaps of hula (if you haven't seen enough already I guess!). Plenty of photo ops, and it's a famous Hawaiian show afterall. If you're lucky, you could end up with one of their beautiful leis :)

    Go check out a hula performance.... We've all seen those hips fly on TV but it's a whole new experience watching those beautiful dancers right in front of your own eyes. Guys love it; women love it.... and you'll feel yourself moving to the rhythm so you've been warned.

    Keiki Hula Dancers

    Dressed in costumes made from flowers, leaves and other foliage, these dancer looked magnificent. I have to admit this was my favorite... must be because I just love the Plumeria.
