The Pearls of Polynesia, in connection with Pegasus Performances, was honoured to perform for a surprise 40th Birthday Party for Victor in Airdrie. The party was held at a very quaint and authentic Italian Restaurant called Il Forno. The private birthday party was held upstairs where larger parties and functions are held. The large room was packed with family and friends of the birthday boy, Victor, who was turning 40 years young! The Luau based party was a smashing success.
Victor’s wife was the mastermind behind this wonderful celebration of her husband’s life’s milestone. Not only did she want to surprise him with a hula dancer, but she wanted to get Victor up on stage to allow those who love him to relish in his Pareo sarong wearing splendour and his hula dance skills. Consequently, this alone brought the crowd to its feet with laughter, cheering, encouragement, photos and whistles!
Victor was truly Victor-ious in his 40-year celebration. To great applause, he demonstrated he is not too old to learn new tricks and danced the night away.
Perfect for a cold night
On this occasion, this was a warm and tropical extravaganza on a chilly, wintery eve in the month of February. Certainly, it was a welcome break from the Canadian weather outside. Guests got to visit the tropics and dive into a world of palm trees, coconuts, grass skirts, tahitian warriors, and hula maidens. (Despite the fact the trees may have been of the inflated and paper variety, and the Kanes and Wahines were wearing parkas plus the occasional pair of Sorrel boots to venture into the outside!)
Upon the Pearls of Polynesia entering, the audience went wild. The cheering and the applause was louder than the music as everyone was excited to honour Victor with this surprise moment of the evening. Victor got up on stage and was accompanied by his daughter, who was beside herself to see his reaction to the performance.
Several other of Victor’s friends joined on stage to perform a Tahitian warrior dance.
After this performance, many lovely ladies also got up onto the stage. Among them was Victor’s wife, Victor’s children, plus female friends and family members. We all learned a hula dance to Tiny Bubbles. Tiny Bubbles is a signature Pearls of Polynesia piece that is a fun hula sequence that all ages can enjoy. Of course, the young children were very excited to join in the excitement and festivities on stage. Our lovely hula performance made time to allow the birthday boy to build an appetite again for his lovely birthday cake afterwards. As our time came to a close, the birthday festivities and merriment continued with singing Happy Birthday, and cake.
It was a joyous 40th Birthday for Victor and his family. The Pearls of Polynesia were very happy to be a part of this celebration.
All the best for the coming years Victor, make it joyous and keep that warrior spirit and kind heart.
