With all of the fireworks and Fourth of July parties this week, I thought the fun would start slowing down. After glancing at next weekend’s calendar, I realized how wrong I was – the month of July is just starting to heat up (and I’m not even talking about the temps)!
Next weekend kicks off early with Grapes and Ales on Friday the 13th (check out last week’s post for more on Our Lady of the Wayside’s fundraiser).
But the party doesn’t stop there — continuing on Saturday, July 14 when the 7th annual Luau on the Lake takes over Whiskey Island’s Wendy Park.
From 4-9 pm on July 14, the Hawaiian-themed event will feature food and drinks, as well as sand volleyball, giveaways, music and beautiful views of the lake fit for a tiki god.
A catered menu, including Caribbean Jerk-Spiced Roast Potatoes, Citrus Glazed Chicken, Sweet & Sour Brined and Slow Roasted Pork Loin and Island-inspired Sorbet, will be served until 7:30, with snacks available throughout the rest of the evening.
Luau on the Lake is one of the largest fundraisers for the local non-profit Shoes and Clothes for Kids. Proceeds from tickets and the event’s giveaways and raffle will benefit their mission of distributing new shoes, clothing, and items to income-eligible families throughout Greater Cleveland.
Tickets cost only $40 if you buy before July 11th ($50 after and at the door) and include food, beer, wine, music, sand volleyball and a souvenir cup.
For only $10 more, you can purchase a Big Kahuna VIP ticket which gets you the ultimate Luau experience at the best value. VIP tickets include all General Admission benefits plus early entry at 3:30pm, 3 Specialty Island Cocktail tickets, a Hawaiian lei and tote. VIP tickets are only on sale until July 11, so get those tickets now.
But wait, there’s more: You and a guest can be Big Kahunas by entering the Clue Into Cleveland giveaway for a pair of VIP Luau tickets!

However, as with any event I post about, I am sharing this event because I think it is something that would also interest other Clevelanders.
