An attempt to organize the world’s largest “hula line” will bring hundreds of dancers, professionals and beginners alike, into Waikiki on Saturday, Aug. 20. Hundreds of people will line Waikiki Beach for “Hula on the Beach,” and dance to a song performed by Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hanneman in the hopes of getting into the Guinness Book of World Records. The song will be “I Fell In Love with Honolulu,” a hapa haole tune written by musician and former UH music professor Neil McKay, and it will be broadcast on KINE 105.1FM so it can be heard along the entire route. While organizers have yet to confirm that Guinness will be able to certify the “hula line,” the event will be staged either way. The popular “Brunch on the Beach” block party will follow. In order to certify the number of participants, organizers are asking people to pre-register, and free hula workshops will be held leading up to the event for anyone looking to practice along with the song. Find more information at HonoluluPride.com. “Hula on the Beach” is part of the citywide celebration of the Honolulu Centennial.
