One of the first things I think of when I think of Hawaii is a luau - so I was pretty keen on going to one. Thankfully many people recommended it too.
Everything was so picturesque. They did a fishing demonstration with a hula dance on the beach during sunset.
There were stations where you could learn to make flower leis or throw a spear. (Note the Hawaiian shirt!)
I made a flower headress and wore it all night.
Then everyone gathered around to see a royal procession and watch the pig be pulled out of the hot coals. As Aaron said - "They cook a pig and dance about it."
After dinner the dancing began. One amazing routine after the other.
This was a wedding hula.
The most exciting dance was the fire dance.
We did notice at the end he had a burn on his stomach. Ouch.
