Holiday Hula celebrates the joy of the season

Nearly 1,000 people filled the grand ballroom of the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa to enjoy the 24th annual Holiday Hula, presented by Na Hula O Kaohikukapulani.

Under the direction of Kumu Hula Kapu Kinimaka-Alquiza, the halau, featuring students from around the island, mesmerized the audience with its presentations of kahiko and auana hula celebrating the season.

Trinette Kaui, whose family is heavily involved with the halau, Wes playing with the musicians, sons Kale being the emcee and Kawika helping Trinette with ticket sales, said the halau hosts two major hoike each year — the Holiday Hula and another hoike during the summer.

Guests were treated not only to hula and seasonal entertainment, but were able to enjoy  baked goods, snacks and participate in a silent auction.
