A taste of the tropics

Mystic — Dancers with Kaiholunuie, a polynesian dance group from Wallingford, led a lesson for children attending Tropical Sunsation at Mystic Aquarium Monday. The group taught dances from Tahiti, Hawaii and New Zealand Maori traditions. 

The event, which ran over the long Presidents' Day weekend, also featured Live steel drum music, diving mermaids in the Coral Reef exhibit, and a tropical fish craft for kids of all ages. Tropical Sunsation activities were free to all with paid admission to the aquarium.
