Pilikana - A Kona Inn Luau

The Pilikana Luau takes place on the "Great Lawn" at the historic Kona Inn Shopping Village. This is a great way to experience local island culture and enjoy a delicious dinner in the same time. Upon arrival, you can visit several activity stations featuring hula lessons, Polynesian drumming, Polynesian tattoos and fire-knife demonstrations (with no fire).

Later in the evening, two Kane performers will make their way through, blowing conch shells, which signals that it's time to enter the luau grounds. Catered by Umekes Restaurant, the menu features a wide variety of delicacies. There will be live music as well during the dinner hour.

After dinner, the Pilikana show will start, a fantastic Polynesian show with music and dances from Hawaii and across Polynesia.
