Screen Shot 2018-04-18 at 12.30.54 PMLA GRANDE — Showcasing dances from the islands of Hawaii, Tahiti, Tuvalu, Republic of Palau, Samoa and New Zealand has become a tradition of its own in La Grande.

For more than 30 years, Eastern Oregon University’s Navigators Club has shared festive, traditional food and live entertainment with the community. The Navigators Club is a student organization that aims to create cultural awareness regarding the many different cultures of people who originate from the Pacific Islands. The organization also strives to unify students and the La Grande community  through events, activities and other school functions.

This year marks the 31st annual Island Magic Lu’au and Show.

The dinner starts at 5:30 p.m. April 21 in Hoke Union Building’s Room 339. The show will start at 7 p.m. in McKenzie Theater in Loso Hall.

Please note that the start time and venue may differ from a flyer for the event that was previously distributed. These are the updated details, according to EOU faculty member Susan Whitelock.

“This year’s show will be presented the way it should be,” club president Ramon Fukuichi said in a press release for the event. “Look forward to amazing island style cuisine, music and entertainment and that island vibe we all love.”

Tickets are available at the EOU Bookstore and at Jax Dog Cafe and Books. Admission is $10 for EOU students and $12 for members of the community.
