Aloha Festival at Tempe Town Lake

On March 9th and 10th, Tempe got it's annual taste of the islands with the Aloha Festival at Tempe Town Lake. Hula dancing, traditional island foods, and plenty of Polynesian crafts kept visitors entertained for a weekend full of island-themed fun. In addition to the variety of cultural food, the beautiful Arizona sun set a tropical mood that made festival goers hungry for Hawaiian shaved ice and fresh lemonade. PHOTOS BY LAUREN SARIA.
