Wellington To Celebrate AAPI Heritage Month

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, recognizing the rich heritage and cultural contributions of individuals and groups of Asian and Pacific Islander descent.

On Friday, May 10, Wellington invites the public to attend a special evening at the Wellington Amphitheater (12100 W. Forest Hill Boulevard) in celebration of this vibrant community.

Starting at 7:30 p.m., join the Aloha Islanders on a journey through Polynesia with pulsating drums, hula dancers and a Samoan fire knife dance. This Polynesian show features an action-packed, nonstop revue of dances from Hawaii, Tahiti, Samoa and New Zealand.

Immediately following the performance, enjoy a free showing of Lilo & Stitch (PG) at 8 p.m. A limited selection of food trucks will be available. Guests should bring their own blankets and chairs for seating. To learn more about Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, visit www.wellingtonfl.gov/AAPI.
