The PCC’s popular "Ha: Breath of Life" will be performed at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center in West Valley on July 25-26 and at the Quad at Utah Valley University on July 27. The show features performers from across the Pacific, drums, dance, music and special effects and, of course, the always-popular fire-knife performance.

Tickets will go fast, as they sold out quickly last year.

The West Vest Valley performances on Thursday, July 25, and Friday, July 26, at 8 p.m. will be held in the Utah Cultural Celebration Center Outdoor Amphitheater at 1355 West 3100 South in West Valley City Tickets are $10 and are available at Polynesia.com/Utah..

The UVU performance on July 27 will be held in the Quad at Utah Valley University at 800 W University Parkway in Orem. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased through UVU’s Campus Connection or by calling 801-863-8797.

Performers and local alumni from the PCC will also participate in the Days of ’47 KSL 5 Parade. The PCC’s float entry, "Voyage of Faith," honors the center’s 50th anniversary.

Founded in 1963 as a non-profit organization, the PCC has entertained more than 34 million visitors while preserving and portraying the culture, arts and crafts of Polynesia to the rest of the world. In addition, the PCC has provided financial assistance to 17,000 young people from more than 70 different countries while they attend Brigham Young University-Hawaii.
