What are some ideas for a luau party for teen boys and girls? I need help.

You could find a long stick, about the length of a broom and have a limbo dance, I think that is what it is called----it has been a long time since I was young enough to go things like that. You could also have a conga line dance. Have a fake luau, minus the roast pig, and with less expensive foods. Oriental trading company has lots of neat Hawiian decorations that are reasonably priced.
I just had one of these for my daughter last year! One thing we did was a relay race. I had a bag of luau wear (sunglasses, visor, coconut bra, flip flops and a lei), one set for each team. Split kids into teams. First person gets dressed in the get up, runs to a hula hoop, does the hula hoop (or tries!!) runs back, undresses and the next person takes over. Also, water guns! Have an adult light a candle at a set distance and they have to put out the flame with a water gun. We had pineapple, pulled pork, etc. I also had a local hula teacher come and show (mainly the girls) some of the moves. You could also have someone face painting.
Have fun! (And yes, the limbo is a must!)
You could use hollowed-out pineapples or coconuts to drink punch from, non-alcoholic, of course. You could play Beach Boys, Jan & Dean or Don Ho music in the background, or play one of the multitude of surfing themed movies for ambiance. Beach volleyball would be a fun game. No beach required, provided other ambiance is right, lol!

My best friend and I are having a Luau party in two weeks. We're inviting 60 people, all 14 to 15 year olds. We are having it at 7:00 to 11:00PM and are having music and food. We have no ideas what else to do so that people don't get bored. Any ideas?
You should look up what they do in Hawaii you know they like to Hula so you could have a hula contest or play Hawaiian musical chairs. Get some sea shells have them all take a guess as to how many is in it and whoever is closest wins a prize (like a flower lei) (09/14/2005)
You absolutely HAVE to play limbo! We did that at our college one year and it was a real hit! We also taught the hula and had a contest - one of the librarians was from Hawaii, but I'll bet you could find a video, learn, and then teach! Have fun! (09/14/2005)
