Opening Night at The Royal Hawaiian Hotel
1,200 people attended a black-tie dinner affair in the original dining room called the Persian Room, now the site of the Monarch Room.
Princess Kawananakoa (descendant of the former monarchy) staged a colorful hour-long pageant featuring native songs and dances. After the show, guests danced to the music of the Royal Hawaiian Band.
"The outstanding event of the season" still remains a treasured island memory.
