Moanalua Gardens Foundation (MGF) will present "Na Punawai o Moanalua...the wellspring of Moanalua," the 34th Annual Prince Lot Hula Festival at spectacular Moanalua Gardens on Saturday, July 16, 2011, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The largest non-competitive hula event in Hawaii, the festival honors Prince Lot Kapuaiwa who reprised the once banned hula in the district of Moanalua.
A historical and cultural treasure, Moanalua Gardens is one of the most beautiful places in Honolulu on the island of Oahu. Once a botanical garden, it is home to rare trees, native foliage and historic structures such as Chinese Hall and the King Kamehameha V Cottage.
A number of Hawaii's top hula halau will participate in the festival performing both hula kahiko (ancient) hula and chant, and ‘auana (modern) hula performances. Dancers will perform on one of the few remaining pa hula (hula mounds) in Hawaii.
