The Hawaiian Village Hotel was built in the 1950s before Conrad Hilton purchased it in 1961. Tiki culture thrived at the resort. There was no Rainbow Tower but there were plenty of thatched roof guest rooms, the lagoon, pink catamarans, palm trees and Waikiki Beach. Entries will be previewed at the fat quarter size: 21″ x 18.” Submissions close June 6, 2017 at 3 p.m. Eastern.
