Catalina Tiki Fest 2006
August 18-20, Catalina Island will host the Catalina Tiki Fest. The event will feature cultural exhibitions and workshops, including hula lessons, lei making, and tiki carving. Vendors will be selling tiki wares all weekend, and the main event is a luau with performances by over 50 Polynesian dancers on Saturday night. It takes place at Descanso Beach on Catalina — the island is 22 miles off-shore and is part of Los Angeles County, and is reachable by boat. Full details, including the schedule and ticket purchase, are available at the Catalina Tiki Fest website.
