I was waiting for Smogbreather to bring this up as he told me about this before New Years, but I know he is busy and I have seen this on several websites that I can't find now. Looks like a full blown luau with some good bands........Smokin Menehunes, Ape, plus traditional Hawaiian, vendors etc. Hopefully he will chime in and give us the 411.......Lots going on this year!

Hey Bongo,
this was the first Catalina Tiki fest in 2003 where I did a live carving demo, and the highlight was meeting Bamboo Ben and Crazy Al for the first time! I was so nervous carving right in front of the master of detail Al. Come to think of it, that store still has that tiki I carved...


At the time, people weren't too hip to tiki, but I imagine 3 years later will do the trick!

I don't remember seeing Holden's confirmation of this!!! I'll tell you now that if it IS that weekend you better reserve a room NOW or there won't be any! WooHooWahine (also a travel agent in her spare-haha time) says that you better make reservations now as that weekend fills fast and Catalina has limited lodging!

I checked the Yahoo travel website - the only hotel available that weekend is $280.00 per night.

I might be wrong but I can almost predict that maybe Holden has an arrangement with the Hotels/Motels in Catalina. So everything would be a package deal. Don't you think that would only make sense?? This sounds like alot of fun.

Funny thing is I was Born In So. Cal. at age 3 Moved to Nor. Cal.
Moved back to So.Cal. in '81 But I've never Been to Catalina.
I've been to Hawaii twice, and my parents are always buggin' me to go with them(they have a time-share on Kauai).
But I need to get over to the Catalina Island a bit more often.
They had a surf music festival in 2000 or so.
with Stingrays(kids from San Clemente) and Chantays(of Pipeline)fame.
in the day outside.
And Blue Hawaiians and Dick Dale(miserlou) played at night in the big Dance Hall. I wanted to go. But it was 100bucks plus plus.
and I was a lowly 7-11 employee at the time and had to work weekends.

Hey Jeff.......I also saw that the Blue Hawaiians are supposed to play on the 19th after Ape and Gregg DeCastro.

Here is a link to one of the sites I saw it on with a lot of info. Also lots of other Hawaiian goodies and events on the mainland.

Damn! The Hermit campgrounds are already full/booked.
Anyone have a reservation that could occupy one more TCer?
I may have to stay at Little Harbor campground. It's beautiful, but about 16 miles away from Avalon.

The last event 3 summers ago was put on by the guy who literally owned most of Catalina, including the hotels, so I imagine that the rooms are being held for this event... but if its the same weekend as Long Beach, I'm going LBC!
