We certainly had a treat today. We knew that Stampin' Up! was going to bring us to the Polynesian Cultural Centre today, but we didn't quite realize that they were going to rent out the entire park for us and close it down for the morning to the general public!!
|Representatives From Tonga|
As my daughter said when she found out....'I have a feeling Stampin' Up!'s motto is - "Go Big, or Go Home!"'
Not quite my dear, but it sure feels that way when the bless us so richly, doesn't it?!?
|The New Zealand Float|
|Dancers From Samoa|
The Polynesian Cultural Centre has volunteers working at it from every different Polynesian country and they showcase the culture from the various regions in an entertaining and wonderful way!
One of the highlights was the Canoe Pageant, where dancers from each country float past on 'barges' and sing and dance in makeup and costume to emulate what their native people would have looked like several hundred years ago.
Totally entertaining and exciting!
I am so glad my kids got to see this.
|King Kamehameha Re-enactment|
|The "Royal" Barge|
My favourite? The Tahitian dancers who proved, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that some things move faster than the naked eye can see!
Check back later to see what our amazing Pillow Gift was this evening!
Until then, have a wonderful day and God Bless, ~Cynthia <><
