Pearl Davies proud sponsor of Tiki Oasis Festival: San Diego California (USA)

Pearl Davies is stoked to announce the sponsorship of The Tiki Oasis Festival to be held in San Diego August 13-16 2015. The Tiki Oasis is the largest and longest-running Tiki gathering in the world and the BEST tropical cocktail festival hands down. Guests enjoy 4 days and nights of popular live entertainment, a Tiki Shopper's Paradise featuring collectible, one-of-a-kind and hand-made items from around the world, a classic car show, the beauty bungalow, the rum and cigar lounge, burlesque bombshells, a Tiki symposium series showcasing top experts in history, mixology, music, art, architecture and more! Our annual event takes place each summer in sunny San Diego, CA on the third weekend in August.

Whether it was a World’s Fair or Disneyland’s Tomorrowland (1955), It seemed that the interest in other worlds in outer space was equally as intriguing as our curiosity of primitive cultures. All World's Fairs had "International" exhibits displaying Exotic and Primitive cultures alongside the most modern aspects of technology. Similarly, with a short walk across Disnelyland's Main Street, tourists travelled from the advanced technologies of Tomorrowland to the wilds of Adventureland's Polynesian garden - The Tiki Room and the Jungle Cruise. In 1947 the world listened and read about the Kon Tiki raft sailing across the South Pacific toward the most remote island on earth - Easter Island. Ten years later the Western world watched as Russia’s Sputnik sailed into outer space to begin The Space Race.

Pearl Davies is delighted to announce that we are giving away prizes for the Miss Tiki Oasis Competition. Get amongst it!
