Day 4 we first went to a Swap Meet at the Aloha Stadium, pretty fun, but it was hot out on the asphalt! Next we drove to the Polynesian Cultural Center, which is kind of like an EPCOT, but just for the Polynesian islands. The Polnesian islands are made up of: Tonga, Tahiti, Fiji, Hawaii, Samoa and New Zealand. We spent the day there and did tons of activities that related to the different islands. It opened at noon and we appeared to be one of the first groups of people there and the place was eerrily deserted. We were the first in line for the IMAX theatre and there were only about 10 people in the theater. The cultural center quickly filled up though. The place is broken up into different polynesian islands and in each section you can/see different things pertaining to that island.
We also watched a performance and then Steve and Harriet played this traditional stick throwing game at Tahiti.
Harriet got a crown made out of palms at one of the islands.
We really enjoyed the day and learned a lot about the different island cultures. We had heard that this place had the best luau, but basically after experiencing everything that was in the luau performance it seemed like overkill.
