Over 170 soloists competed in this years' Heiva i Honolulu competition today at the Waikiki Shell. The older age categories were extremely competitive reversing the trend where most of the competitors were on the younger side. Finalists in each age group will compete tomorrow and from there compete for the Overall soloist.

Towards the evening it got a little colder than we're used to. So if you are planning on coming Friday or Saturday, you might want to consider bringing a sweater or jacket just in case.

Group competition begins tomorrow. Gates open at 8:30 am. Tickets are $15, $10 (children 4-10). Many groups competing are in the Hura Ava Tau division, or junior division. Groups will perform aparima's, otea, paoa, and other traditional Tahitian dances.
