Those who wish they could be in Hawaii on this cold and blustery day may be able to get their fix at a Luau event happening this Saturday, April 20th, at the Weyburn Legion.

Secretary Manager Debbie Kater says the event is open to all ages and there will be a free draw for anyone who dresses up in Hawaiian attire.

"We're going to be having roast pig cooked by Western Prime Meats, and then a huge salad bar, veggie platters, fruit, fresh buns, and some desserts like pineapple upside down cake and coconut pie with a Hawaiian theme, we also got a couple of signature beverages."

For all that food it's just $22 (tax included) for adults, $12 for children ages six to 12, and free for children five and under. Advance tickets are available in the Legion Lounge or by calling the office at 306-842-4258. Tables of eight or more can be reserved. 

"We encourage you to bring out your whole family from babies to grandma and everything in between. We're going to be having Kat here from Kat & Fuel's Tattoo shop and she's going to be doing some face painting," shared Kater.

"We're also going to invite people up on the stage to enter our hula and the limbo contest, and the winners will receive a prize.  Mayor Roy and his wife will be judging us."

"Korryn Kubashek is going to be our emcee for the evening, so we're keeping it all local and we're looking forward to having as many people here as we possibly can. We don't have a lot of events at the Legion that are geared toward kids. So we want to step out of our little box and encourage everyone to come in."

One hundred percent of the proceeds from the event will go back to the club.

"Every event that we do is that's Legion-based is a fundraiser for our club, so we appreciate the community support and this is just another way to do that," she added.

The doors open at 5:00 with supper at 6:00 p.m. Membership is not required to enjoy any of the Legion events.
