Are You Being Served?
The ancient Hawaiian saying “kulia I ka nu’u” means "strive to reach the summit.” This year’s 29th Annual Volleyball Festival celebrates just that. The 2012 theme, ho’olaule’a, translates to “celebration” and reflects the fest’s Polynesian roots as well as its role as a celebration of the accomplishments of young female athletes.
Whether you can bump, set, and spike or just want to enjoy the show, the weeklong voll-iday will commence with an Olympics-style opening ceremony held at Chase Field for mass of 6,000 participating athletes. In addition to team marches and appearances by volleyball greats, the ceremony will feature Polynesian and eye-catching fire dancers.
