Enjoy the spirit of the South Pacific when it comes to Parkland in the form of an authentic Polynesian show.
Residents can participate in an evening of purely Polynesian activities complete with conch shells, fire dancing and listening to music – all while learning to hula dance.
“This event was incredibly well-received last year, and there’s a lot of anticipation for it this time,” said City Spokesperson Todd DeAngelis, who feels that it checks all the boxes: it’s unique, and it fits with the small town feel for which Parkland is known.
He added, “Above all, it’s an opportunity for members of the Parkland community to come together and spend time with one another, the kind of event where you can stand in the middle and say, ‘yeah, this is why I live in Parkland.’”
Mayor Christine Hunschofsky said the event has something for everyone, “A Polynesian night is different as well as fun for the whole family, with music, dancing, and entertainment.”
An Evening in Polynesia will take place on June 8 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the Pine Trails Park Amphitheater. The authentic Polynesian experience is free and will have food trucks on hand.
The Pine Trails Park Amphitheater is located at 10555 Trails End.
