Pure Aloha Festival
More than just a greeting, “aloha”—sometimes translated as “joyfully sharing life”—refers to a way of approaching both people and the world. This deeper meaning is celebrated at the 13th annual Pure Aloha Festival, which welcomes guests with live entertainment and Hawaiian cuisine as they mix and mingle. On Thursday and Sunday, carnival games and carousel rides, though not included with admission, bring out visitors’ inner barkers, and hula performances showcase graceful, entrancing movements. More than 100 food-and-clothing vendors beckon with succulent cuisine and colorful apparel. At the Sunday event, a free Easter egg hunt will be conducted for children ages 3-12.
Although it has set up shop in the Nevada desert, Vizzun Entertainment is dedicated to promoting island culture through Hawaiian-themed concerts and festivals. Endorsing bands and producing events including comedy nights with Hawaiian standups, the company deftly turns even the most landlocked venue into a beachy retreat.
