We had a great time at the Prince lot Hula festival. Thank you so much for including us in the event. We enjoyed the Hawaiian music, hula, and met many new wonderful people.
Thank you so much.
Dear Ms. Worsham,
May I say congratulations on an amazing weekend at the Prince Lot Hula Festival 2015.
Having attended this event for over two decades I am astonished by the continued growth and professionalism of the event.
How can it not touch the heart of the public when you honor the lifetime work of Kumu Joan S. Lindsey and Kumu Ed Collier! We received a gracious welcome to the beauty of Moanalua Gardens including a serenade by the Kamehameha Alumni Glee Club. You continue to educate us on the Hawaiian culture through the absolute joy of hula. How I enjoyed the beauty and variety of styles of the halau including the island of Molokai.
The good organization of a large event is never easy and it takes tremendous work. I appreciated the wide variety of artisans, cultural practitioners, food and the volunteers who assisted us.
While sitting in the audience I visited with people from Kauai and Hawaii who flew in for the festival. There were visitors from Asia, Europe and the mainland. The Prince Lot Hula Festival gave us memories to treasure, and a deeper understanding of the Hawaiian people and their culture.
You and your team have created a world class event!
