Family Fun Day in Waimea Feb 7, 2015

The Kahilu Theatre celebrates the blooming of the cherry blossoms in Waimea and honors the age-old Japanese tradition of hanami, or “cherry blossom viewing party,” with free entertainment and hands-on activities, for a fun and interactive “open house.
Guests will be invited to the chanayu, or Japanese tea ceremony, to try their hand at origami, feather lei-making and ikebana (Japanese flower arranging), and even to learn hanafuda – card playing.  Live music on the lyre, flute, guitar and keyboards will accompany dance and song.  This event is part of the Cherry Blossom Festival that takes place throughout the town, and nearly 150 craft booths will surround the theatre in the Parker Ranch Shopping Center.The Theatre stage will be full of dance and acting classes throughout the day.  Hula, ballet, hip hop, acting games, contemporary dance and breakdance lessons will be free and “drop-in”, and offered for all ages.  A new class starts every hour.  The Kahilu also will provide Hula Hoops, Pavement Chalk and seating outdoors.  Jodini Hawaii will amaze with his magic show and balloons at 1pm, and the Voyager Exhibit from Na Kala Waa celebrates the Makali’i voyaging canoe, featuring photographs and mementos from the period of its construction and primary ocean voyages.  The Voyager Exhibit also includes an updated giant world map, showing the route of the Worldwide Voyage of Hōkūle‘a, and past voyages of both Hōkūle‘a and Makali’i.
