Aloha to the Hawaiian Festival!

Each year the hawaiian festival is held in Esther Short park. Over 8,000 visitors sway to the rhythm as hula dancers. Portland, Taiko, Native Tribal dancers, and Polynesian singers fill the park with the heartbeat of their cultures. Arts, Crafts, and food vendors round out this two day long outdoor festival which is now considered the third largest annual event at Esther Short Park.

We would like to take the opportunity to extend a very special thank you to Mel and Sari Aho and Aho Construction for their love and support to our company throughout the years. Without their trust and create freedom, we would not be able to create such fun and wonderful designs!

This year we created a giant pineapple of sunflowers that stood 7 feet tall! What a way to welcome in the festival!

Accompanying this wonderful design we created a 9 foot tall tropical structure of bamboo, heliconia, hala foliage and oncidium orchids. It's dynamic presence really finished off the display!

Up close, you can really get a feel for the intersecting lines of foliage and flowers. It's really fun!

As you say in Hawaii...MAHOLA NUI! (Thank you very much!)
