This video was shot at Pacific Resort Aitutaki who championed Earth Hour in the Cook Islands this year seeking support from government, local businesses and the community to make it happen.

The resort hosted a special evening for its guests and visitors including amazing food and a Cook Islands warrior fire dance show that started just after the lights went out between 8.30pm and 9.30pm.
