luauCAVE CREEK – Hele mei hoohiwahiwa!

Or, “Come Celebrate” the end of summer and Labor Day Weekend at Harold’s Cave Creek Corral on Sun., Sept. 2. Once again, Harold’s is hosting a festive Hawaiian Luau, complete with 10 tons of sand, 10 palm trees, a thrilling “Fire Knife Dance” and lots of fun. The popular party features a pig roast luau buffet, Ka'ea Mauna Lani Hawaiian Luau Dancers, a reggae performance by Grantman & the Island Beat, a limbo and hula contest, face painting, Lei making, Hawaiian vendors, drink specials and more.

Your host is Danny “Maui Dan” Piacquadio, Harold’s Corral’s co-owner, who started the Cave Creek Luau tradition 15 years ago. “It’s probably the only place in Arizona where you’ll see real cowboys hula dancing and people of all ages competing in a limbo contest,” Piacquadio said. “Last year’s event sold out, so get your tickets early.”

Piacquadio also encourages guests to take note of the entertainment and buffet schedule, so they don’t miss out on any fun:
