Polynesian Cultural Center’s 9th Annual Te Manahua Maori Cultural Competition

As of last year, the yearly song and dance festival alternates between youth and adult competitions. This year, adults will take the stage, perpetuating the wairua (spirit) of the Maori culture. Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for kids 3-11. Kama’aina Annual Pass holders and children under the age of three enter for free.
