[ARCHIVED] Wellington Celebrates Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month in May with Aloha Islanders

Wellington Celebrates Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month in May

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, recognizing the rich heritage and cultural contributions of individuals and groups of Asian and Pacific Islander descent. On Friday, May 12th, Wellington invites the public to attend a special evening at Village Park (11700 Pierson Road) in celebration of this vibrant community.

Starting at 7:00pm,  join the Aloha Islanders on a journey through Polynesia with pulsating drums, Hula dancers, and a Samoan Fire Knife Dance. This Polynesian show features an action-packed, non-stop revue of dances from Hawaii, Tahiti, Samoa, and New Zealand.

Immediately following the performance, enjoy a free showing of Moana (PG) at 7:45pm. A limited selection of food trucks will be available on-site. Guests should bring their own blankets and chairs for seating.
