Here are some photo highlights from Saturday ...


Beachbum Berry presents "The Wild West Indies," an insightful symposium to kick off the day's events at The Mai-Kai.


The Hula Girls rock The Molokai bar.


It was a tremendous treat to see Ìxtahuele play in the Tahiti Room.

Mahalo to all the fabulous villagers for the past four days. We're sad to see everything end today. But you can still squeeze in some fun at The Mai-Kai:

Skinny Jimmy & the Stingrays play at noon, and the documentary film "Plastic Paradise" is shown at 1:30 p.m. Following the film, The Mai-Kai will host an after-party with happy hour from 3 to 7, two more sets from the band plus special "lost cocktails" that haven't been served in decades.

We hope to see everyone again June 12-15, 2014!

Thanks for the photo of Nani and I.
It was very special for me to perform the song my father(George Hines) wrote for Nani.

What a terrific event this year, EVEN with the, um, tropical weather.

I especially want to shout out to the volunteers who helped. Many, MANY of them worked lots more hours than their shifts indicated, pinch-hit in multiple areas and without them nothing would have gone nearly as smoothly as it did. So MAHALO and a half.

Thanks also to the Hukilau Crew (Christie "Tiki Kiliki" White, Stacie "Heelgrinder" Herndon, Jim "Hurricane" Hayward and Brian Crum) for being the best to work with.

Mucho mahalo!

Joe The Exhausted Volunteer Coordinator, a/k/a...jokeiii

A few photos from Sunday's final festivities ...


Skinny Jimmy & the Stingrays kept the diehards dancing in The Molokai all day. We didn't want it to end.


After the screening of "Plastic Paradise," villagers enjoyed three special "lost cocktails" as a mahalo from The Mai-Kai.

We hope everyone made it home safely.

See you June 12-15, 2014!

Hands-down the absolute best Tiki event in America. Top dog, head honcho! And the best dressed by a longshot

On behalf of The Hula Girls, I just wanted to say how much fun we had playing for you all! You couldn't have been a better crowd... and to have the opportunity to play in the Mai Kai?? What an honor and a what a blast!

A giant thanks to Christie for bringing us all of the way over to the Hukilau!! We hope to do it again soon!

THANKS!!

Wow, what a sensational Hukilau! Deepest gratitude to everybody's hard work staging this sensational event.
Tristan filmed my swim Friday & I would love to share it with you. For those of you watching from the Wreck Bar, the video video shows a unique view of the presentation. Ixtahuele's "Gardens of Mu" is perfect as the background music.
