an island tradition
The Polynesian Torch-lighting Ceremony
This wouldn’t be a Polynesian Paradise without genuine island traditions. One such tradition is the nightly Torch Lighting Ceremony at the Holiday Inn Resort in Panama City Beach! The ritual began in the South Pacific to honor nature’s blessed abundance. The ritual continues at the Resort to honor and welcome our guests. When you hear the drum beats on our pool deck, look for our own “Polynesian Islander” to set the torches aflame against the dramatic backdrop of the Gulf of Mexico.
