Trip to Maui continued… When in Hawaii, You Must Attend a Traditional Luau

Woo!! Its Friday!!! Who else is doing a happy dance today?  I am hoping today flies by quickly so we can get out vacation at the lake started!  Speaking of vacations… I am continuing on today with my recap of our vacation to Hawaii!

When we first began planning our trip to Hawaii we immediately that we wanted to attend a traditional luau.  Unfortunately with our lack of preparation, all of the best luaus were all booked up.  But, fortunately we were able to get on a waiting list and we found out the day before that there was availability for us the following evening!  

We read all the reviews online and were able to get a table at the Old Lahaina Luau.  We were on our way!

We were greeted with mai tai’s (the traditional Hawaiian drink) when we got there.

It is hard to see in this picture, but my sister and I were given little white flowers that we were to put behind our right ears symbolizing that we were taken.  If you are single, you put the flower behind your left ear.

We ate a buffet style dinner with all the local Hawaiian dishes (so yummy) and had some yummy drinks too.  After dinner we relaxed and watched the show.  They performed many traditional Hawaiian dances and chants.  It was really fun to see!

By the end, we were exhausted!  I think we all fell asleep in the Uber ride home. 😉 

I am off to get this day started!!  I hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!!!
