Another Tiki Oasis has come and gone. Having been to all 11 Tiki Oasis weekenders, I can without a doubt say that this year’s event was in many ways better than the previous 10, (and that my friends is not an easy accomplishment) especially the music – not that any Tiki Oasis ever had below par music, they’ve ALL been marvelous but this one was that much more over the top
