The Hawaiian Inn has re-opened the Hawaiian Dinner Show this spring featuring Polynesian Fire who is known for their amazing talent and has been a growing favorite amongst guests and the local Daytona Beach Community. Their caliber of performance is top-notch and the welcoming, friendly environment they create throughout their presentation makes them a go-to when planning a night out with the family or with loved ones. Their show takes you on a tour of Polynesia through cultural dance that is truly a sensation to watch. They live up to their name by performing multiple fire dances that leave the audience in absolute awe. This comes as no surprise as Polynesian Fire is led by the Lavata’i Family who is known for their Fire Performances and have performed around the world.

This past July, Tulei Lavata’i who is the host of the Polynesian Fire Luau as well as Christian Tolentino who is a recurring Fire Knife Dancer at the luau participated as competitors in the Senior and Intermediate Division of the 2018 Toa Afi Orlando Fire Knife Competition. Already in its third year running, the Toa Afi Orlando has attracted competitors from all over Florida, to California and all the way from Hawaii. The competition lasted 2 days: the first day being Senior division preliminaries and the second day being the Junior Division, Intermediate Division and Senior Finals.

It was a long competition, but they both walked away with wins! Hawaiian Inn would like to congratulate Tulei for winning 2nd place in the Senior Division and Christian for placing 2nd in the Intermediate Division at Orlando’s Fire Knife Competition, Toa Afi Orlando!

Be sure to catch Tulei and Christian’s performance live at the Hawaiian Inn every Tuesday and Saturdays! Click here for more information on the Polynesian Fire Luau at Hawaiian Inn.
