Lu'au returns for 54th year
Pacific Universitys Hawaiian Club, Ná Haumána O Hawaii, presents its 54th annual luau in Forest Grove Saturday, April 12.
The event will include traditional Polynesian dance, music and entertainment, preceded by an authentic luau meal from 4:30 to 6 p.m., featuring kalua pig, chicken long rice, teriyaki chicken, poi, haupia, coconut cake and punch.
Doors for the show open at 5:30 p.m. at the Stoller Athletic Center (SAC).
A Hawaiian general store will feature specialties flown in from the islands, including fresh pineapples, cookies, chocolate-covered macadamia nuts, leis, jams and jellies, and other treats. The shop will be open in the SAC Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and at 5:30 p.m. before the show.
Ticket prices range from $15 to $37 depending on seating and dinner choice.
There are still a limited number of tickets available at boxofficetickets.com.
The Hawaiian Club was established at Pacific in 1959 and has grown steadily since. The luau is a collaborative effort of Pacific students, including Hawaiian Club members, faculty, staff, local community members and businesses. Many students parents come from the islands a week in advance to make leis and put together decorations.Add a comment
