The Moonlight After Party has officially become the… “Moonlight Luau”! We have had so much fun with the “Luau” theme! So, we are gonna keep it up – We will decorate it up nicely – complete with – Tiki torches, Hawaiian Leis, a Cool Band playing laid back music and we are going to cook “Kaula Pork”! WHAT is that you ask??? That means the Pork will be cooked wrapped in Banana leafs and spiced “Hawaiian Luau style”! Last year every bite was eaten! So many said it was the best pork they had ever eaten Thanks!
– ALSO – We want everyone to wear your favorite Hawaiian “Get Up” – Shirt, skirt, hat, WHATEVER – and come on out for a Cool Evening. I’m giving an award (& PRIZE!) this year for ‘Best Luau outfit’ – so have some fun with it

The Moonlight Luau is fun for the whole family. Come party on our private beach at Carters Nursery Pond & Patio.
