l’s Beach Club & Burger Bar presented a 
free, family-friendly Beach Luau Party on 
Okaloosa Island on June 21, marking the 
beginning of summer and the beginning of a 

recurring event each Thursday until the end of summer. 

The initial event had many activities for the entire 

family including tropical beach games such as adult 
and children’s hula hoop and limbo contests, free face 
painting, and balloon animals which were given to kids. 

Polynesian island dance and fire performance with 
entertainers twirled blazing hula hoops and flaming 
staffs, along with other thrilling acrobatics. 

Guests enjoyed the taste of the islands with a 

Polynesian pig roast, little piggie plates for the little 
ones, tropical cocktails, and a fantastic view of the Gulf 
of Mexico while Jamel Boast from Montana provided 
live music.
