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 O‘ahu. Once a botanical garden, it is home to rare trees, native foliage and historic structures.

"Some of Hawai‘i's most celebrated hula hālau participated in this year's festival," said Alika Jamile, MGF Executive Director and President. "In 2010, we added more cultural activities to enhance the experience for visitors and local residents alike," Jamile said.

The event featured both hula kahiko (ancient) hula and chant, and ‘auana (modern) hula performances. Dancers performed on one of the few remaining pā hula (hula mounds) in Hawai‘i.

Local food and refreshments were available for purchase throughout the day. Limited edition 2010 t-shirts, programs and $5 Kokua Buttons may still be available. There is no admission fee, however, a button kokua purchase was requested. Proceeds from these sales help cover festival costs.

The public, and visitors, were welcomed and encouraged to bring their beach chairs and mats and enjoy the fun, food and festivities under the shady monkeypod trees of Moanalua Gardens. No commercial photography was allowed.

Festival sponsors and supporters included the Hawaii Tourism Authority, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, Hawaiian Airlines, the City and County of Honolulu, Dollar Rent A Car, Kaimana Ventures, and other corporations.

A non-profit organization founded in 1970, Moanalua Gardens Foundation (MGF) is committed to preserving and perpetuating the history, native culture and environment of Hawai‘i through education, celebration and stewardship of Kamananui Valley and Moanalua Gardens.

Named in memory of Prince Lot, who later reigned as King Kamehameha V, the festival was founded in 1978 by MGF and now attracts up to 10,000 residents and visitors each year. Moanalua was a favorite recreation spot for Prince Lot, who is credited with reviving the hula in the district of Moanalua. His summer cottage can be found on the gardens‘ grounds.

Participating hālau are listed above. For more information about MGF, please visit MGF's website at or call 808.839.5334.
