Not going on the Eddy Finn Ukulele Mystery Cruise?
Why not join us at these festival events:
Hula dancing workshop
Tomoka and her hula dance group stunned last year’s festival audiences with her performance during the Community Concert Day. This year she will host a free hula dance workshop on the Esplanade.
Location: big white marquee next to the Lagoon on the Esplanade
Screening “Under the Boardwalk: A Ukulele Love Story”
Under the Boardwalk, A Ukulele Love Story is the story of how a small house party in an out of the way town in California grows into the biggest ukulele club in the world. It is also the story of how a small instrument makes a long journey from Portugal to Hawaii to the mainland, lands in people’s hearts, and creates a uniquely Hawaiian-American musical tradition that is currently experiencing a world wide revival.
