The Magic of this Magnificent Moment

“Oke aloha ke kuleana a kahi malihini”  (Love is the host in strange lands)

-Hawaiian saying

Keiki watches a hula dance telling a story about Lili'uokalani

The torch lighting ceremony at Kuhio Beach keeps the spirit of O’ahu (the gathering place) alive.

People of all ages gather from around the world to watch hula and listen to oli (chants) and mele (songs) telling stories that have been told on this island for hundreds of years.

By the end of the ceremony the torches will be lit, surrounding you by the dance of flame and flesh.
