It’s time to get tropical.
The Beach Retreat & Lodge in South Lake Tahoe is bringing back its Summer Luaus, with the first taking place Saturday, June 15.
The history of the luau, a Hawaiian feast featuring cultural performances, dates back to ancient Hawaii, where feasts where organized to celebrate special occasions, according to gohawaii.com. The feasts were originally called ahaainas.
Luau, which refers to the taro leaf, eventually became the popular word for the celebrations, according to gohawaii.com.
The Beach Retreat luau will feature delicious island-inspired drinks, an authentic buffet featuring Kalua pork and the Hula dancers, according to an event description on the ticket website.
You’ll feel just like you’re on the Big Island.
The luau runs from 6-9 p.m.
Tickets are $65 per adult and $32 per child (12 and younger). Ticket price does not include tax and fees.
Admission gets you food, entertainment, a complimentary Mai Tai (non-alcoholic drinks are available for kids) and good times.
A full bar will be available for cash sales.
Tickets are available online at www.eventbrite.com/e/beach-retreat-lodge-at-tahoe-june-luau until 10 p.m. on Friday. Day-of tickets will be sold based on availability starting at 4 p.m. at the Beach Retreat.
