Aloha Fest., San Francisco, 2010


This morning we spent a few hours in San Francisco’s Park Presidio, at the 16th Annual Aloha Festival. A couple years ago, we were also here for the first time.  My daughter and her dance group, Merahi O Tehani, participated and performed at the festival.  This year festival’s crowd didn’t seem to be as big as the one we attended in the past.  Maybe the weather had something to do with the seemingly lower attendance.   It was so cold and wet (misty) all day we were there. The kids were performing really well, as usual.  Please enjoy the complete photo album: http://daudfam.net/gallery/v/2010/AlohaFestival2010/.

Tahiti Fete 2010


4th of July weekend was, once again, Tahiti Fete week (http://www.tahitifete.com). My daughter’s halau (Merahi O Tehani) participated in tamarii (children) division for group competition.  Some dancers also competed in solo competition.  We did not win any medal this time, but those kids did excellent.  Their hard work in months of tireless practises really showed during competition.
