Several hundred students and their families turned out Saturday for the Second Annual Immaculate Heart Land Luau, which was hosted by Immaculate Heart High School’s Athletic Department and Parents Booster Club. The event welcomed new and returning students to an evening of both barbecue and a traditional luau dinner, performances by professional Hawaiian dancers, and fun and games, including a hula-hoop contest, a dunk tank, and a bounce house.
