Hawaiian Las Vegas - Lake Las Vegas Outrigger Canoe Races and Festival - Photo Tour

The Las Vegas Hawaiians are at it again! Spreading their cultural heritage around their Ninth Island, called Las Vegas. This time it was the 7th Annual Hawaiian Isle Festival and Outrigger Canoe Races held at MonteLago Village in Lake Las Vegas. It is a 2 day event with quite a number of teams competing in the races.

Then of course you have a variety of Pacific Island entertainers performing on the floating stage at the edge of the lake, with everything from music and dance to martial arts. Around the village streets there were tents offering up island delicacies to both our 'island invaders' and us mainlanders. There was also a variety of merchandise vendors on hand for anyone wanting to take a bit of the islands home with them.

This is all brought to you by the Las Vegas Hawaiian Civic Club (LVHCC) that holds many throughout the valley each year. In September I wrote about the Prince Jonah Kuhio Ho'olaule'a - Pacific Islands Festival held on Water St. in downtown Henderson. It is another of their multi-day events held each year, and that one was their 18th annual. As you can tell from this, they are a very active organization in the Las Vegas community and enjoy sharing their culture.

As you'll see in the pictures, Lake Las Vegas and MonteLago Village is a beautiful setting for this event. This lake oasis is wrapped in mountains that offer an array of colors to accent the Mediterranean style architecture. In the background you'll notice the golf course and some of the beautiful homes and condos that surround the lake. You might also catch a glimpse of the lake's yacht and gondolas that are available for hire, or a few of the gardens, restaurants and shops found in the village next to the quaint casino of the same name. It's a great place that has a number of events during the year including concerts like Jazz by the Lake, family movies on the lawn, and holiday activities to name just a few.

Now onto the pictures of this unique Las Vegas Valley event and community.
