Saturday, August 13 is International Tiki Day! A chance to kick back, relax, and enjoy some strong drinks and a little slice of the good life in your own hometown.
International Tiki Day is a real, fake holiday, in the tradition of Cinco De Mayo. It takes place the second Saturday of August, and loosely commemorates the successful landing of Thor Heyerdahl 's Kon-Tiki expedition on the Tuamotu Islands on August 7, 1947. This year it also marks the birthday of famed Hawaiian musician Don Ho.
Celebrate International Tiki Day by hosting your own backyard luau or join the tiki faithful at any of the following organized events:
