Las Vegas, Nev. (April 2023) --- Downtown Summerlin® is pleased to host two free community events to kick off Asian Pacific Heritage Month and celebrate the rich heritage of the Hawaiian and Pacific Islands.
Flavors of Aloha is a one-of-a kind Hawaiian-style culinary event that includes island food, cultural performances, crafts, hula and Tahitian dance workshops, lei making, a car show and more. It takes place on The Lawn at Downtown Summerlin on Saturday, April 29 from noon to 8 p.m. For information on this free public event, visit flavorsofaloha.com
The second annual Lei Day Parade, set for Monday, May 1, kicks off with pre-parade festivities at 5:30 p.m. and the parade at 6 p.m. It takes place along Park Centre Drive.
The parade, in partnership with BESTAgency, features local cultural organizations including Nani Ola Hawaiian Dance Company, Na Hula O Kaleiokapualani and Tevakanui Polynesian Dance Company. Parade watchers will experience performances such as the Ancient Hula Kahiko accompanied by a chanter who tells the story; the free-flowing modern style of Hula Auana; the passion and pride of the Māori Haka; the rapid hip-shaking movements of the Tahitian Dances, and much more!
“This year, we are pleased to have not one, but two cultural events to celebrate Asian Pacific Culture in Southern Nevada,” said Halee Harczynski, senior director, marketing, Downtown Summerlin. “Flavors of Aloha and our Lei Day Parade are perfect ways to honor and experience this unique and distinctive culture that adds so much to the fabric of our community.”
