New this year is a one-hour South Seas performance presented by Tupua Productions (http://www.tupuaproductions.com). The performers include graceful hula dancers, Samoan fire dancers and Tahitian drummers who bring the tales and legends of the Polynesian islands to life.
Luau-goers will enjoy hors d'oeuvres while being serenaded by the sweet sounds of ukulele music. The evening buffet is catered by Famous Dave's, which will serve Hawaiian dishes normally only available at its location in Maui. Items on the menu include huli buli pulled pork roast and chicken, chicken with pineapple and BBQ sauce, pineapple coleslaw, fresh made bbq potato chips, sticky rice, mango, pineapple and kiwi tropical fruit platters, banana bread and pineapple upside down cake.
"We're excited to have Tupua Productions putting on a new show for us this year," says Randy Strong, one of the event organizers. "Famous Dave's is bringing a Hawaiian twist to its normally bbq-only menu so everyone will be in for a real treat."
Admission to the luau is $38 per person, $48 for VIP seating. Tickets can be purchased in advance. No tickets will be sold at the door. For more information or to purchase luau tickets online, visit http://www.tropicaldaze.org or go to Facebook.com/
