Most activities are free during the week throughout the festival, however, tickets are required to attend the hula competition. Tickets are hard to come by at the last minute, so if you can't make the competition in person, you can join the hundreds of thousands of hula enthusiasts who will be watching live on KITV Channel 5. Or link to the live stream at k5thehometeam.com to see all the action.
Holualoa Inn offers a Girlfriends' Getaway that includes an authentic hula lesson and a copy of your hula song on CD to take with you. This Hawaiian vacation package is one of many offered Big Island bed and breakfast located in the heart of Kona, Hawaii, in the artists' village of Holualoa.
