In Hawaii, a popular evening activity is a Luau.  A Luau is a Hawaiian feast and celebration.  At a Luau, their is usually hula dancers, Hawaiian singers, fire and knives dancers.  The tradition at Luaus is to eat on taro tree mats and eat with the hands instead of using utensils.  But we didn't do that and just followed the modern etiquette of eating with forks and knives.  Right before the show, there were activities for the children, such as face painting and bracelet making.  I learned how to make a bracelet out of taro leaves. 

At the beginning of the show, there was a princess that hula danced for us.  Her skirt was made out of taro leaves. She shook there hips really fast, and I can see her skirt going in a fast circle. The next thing the dancers performed for us was the fire dance. They spun the fire in circle really fast, and later added knives to the dance. It was exciting to watch them dance with such dangerous props and not get burnt or cut.
