HONOLULU - December 12, 2013 - Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort will close out 2013 with a variety of entertainment and dining options, including a New Year's Eve Dance Party with Paradise & Company, non-stop live music in Tapa Bar and Tropics Bar & Grill, and a special New Year's Eve edition of the Waikiki Starlight Luau.

The doors to the Coral Ballroom will open at 8:15 p.m. for the New Year's Eve Dance Party. The ticket price of $100 plus tax per person includes a half-bottle of champagne and party favors. Opening for Paradise & Company will be the exciting illusions of Mark Mauricio.

Paradise & Company will bring in the New Year with its vast repertoire of songs  that will take the audience on a musical journey through the decades, from the feet-tapping Andrew Sisters' "Boogie Woogie," on through the 50s and 60s and into top hits by contemporary artists. Featuring five of Hawaii's top singers-Little Albert, Casey Thompson, Christina Souza, Jessica Sands and Monika Nabarrette-the troupe includes a 12-piece band and gogo dancers that will keep the crowd dancing all night long.

Mark Mauricio
is one of Hawaii's hottest illusionists. From very humble beginnings, he has progressed to a headliner in his own show in Waikiki, opened a private magic school, performs at major conventions and has won international magic competitions. His shows are notoriously humorous and spell-binding at the same time. Mark will captivate the entire audience, young and old, on New Year's Eve.

The Waikiki Starlight Luau moves to a special location at the Great Lawn on December 31. The color heritage of the Pacific Islands is celebrated in an exciting Voyage across the South Seas, featuring the music and dance of Samoa, Tahiti and Hawaii.
