Mom happened to see a notice for a Polynesian Festival and she cut it out of the paper. What a treat! Right here in our city of Oakland Park (in the Greater Fort Lauderdale area.) And, it was at Jaco Pastorius park, named after a jazz musician that Jim was familiar with – apparently a local boy. Jim had just been reading about this park named after Jaco because of his tragic story. Successful musician, killed in a bar fight.
Anyway, the festival and the entertainment were provided by the Polynesian Cultural Association. Jim and I, Lynne and John, and Mom took a few hours yesterday afternoon and enjoyed the festival. Mom even dressed in her Polynesian best.
Come to find out there is a dance studio where you can learn to do this dancing … Ooooh that would be so much fun.
Samoan Bouncer? Actually – this guy was very friendly … he danced and made baskets too.
