Free things to do in Hawaii: Prince Lot Hula Festival
This Saturday, July 21 is the 35th Annual Prince Lot Hula Festival. This wonderful festival is the largest non-competitive hula event in the state, so the Aloha Spirit will be in the air.
The festival will be held at Moanalua Gardens and is truly a celebration of the traditional Hawaiian dance. It honors Prince Lot Kapuaiwa, who reprised the Hula which was once banned in the area.
Running from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., there will be over a dozen performances, and a chance to enjoy local dishes for lunch. The event is free but the Moanalua Gardens Foundations has a button fundraiser to help raise funds. Come out and support the cause and experience Hawaiiana on your vacation.
