I’ve never been to Hawaii myself though I have often been mistaken for Hawaiian. There is so much about the islands and the culture that entice people. It is laid back, creative, almost magical. On Labor Day, weekend Southern Californians can get the chance to immerse themselves in all things Hawaiian at the 18th Annual E Hula Mau Polynesian Festival, Hula and Chant Competition.

On August 31st to September 2nd, 2012, The 18th Annual E Hula Mau® returns to the Terrace Theater at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center, an SMG-Managed facility. The celebration of Hawaiian culture, which also hosts Southern California’s only Hula and Chant Competition, is presented by Na Mamo®. The Polynesian festivities will feature dynamic live performances, unique arts and crafts, interactive workshops, and a delectable Island-style cuisine.
