Aug 17, 2007
Oahu is the third largest of the islands of Hawaii, the Big Island and Maui are both larger, located in the United States of America, and the most popular tourist destination. As the location of Honolulu, the state capital, and as home to over eight five percent of the states population, the island is appropriately nicknamed The Gathering Place.

Every year, the best fire knife dancers from across the globe travel to Hawaii to compete for the coveted title. Its a must see event for everyone.

Along with the Fire knife Championship event visitors have the opportunity to attend the Samoan Cultural High School Arts Festival in the Pacific Theatre. Students from Hawaii high schools will demonstrate their Samoan cultural knowledge and skills in friendly competitions such as basket weaving, coconut husking, banana peeling, fire making, singing, dancing, and oration.

Oahus own Concert Hall will be home to Broadways award winning Best Musical, Disneys the Lion King. This worldwide phenomenon will transform the Concert Hall into the Pride lands of Africa and will take you on a journey as Simba learns his role in the Circle of Life.

The musical begins as the sun rises over the savanna and all the animals gather at Pride Rock to see Mufasa, the Lion King, and his queen, Sarabi, introduce their newborn son, Simba. Pride, respect, and responsibility are character traits Simba struggles with as he moves from cub to Lion King, a passage wrought with the quilt of his fathers untimely death and the pressures of becoming what his family and friends expect of him. THE LION KING will be presented locally by West Coast Entertainment, part of Red Lion Hotels Corporation and sponsored by Outrigger Enterprises Group.
