Annual Hawaiian luau and pig roast

Friday, August 5, 2016 by LORETTA FENSTERMACHER Special to The Press in Local News

It was a fun day at Alburtis pool recently where approximately 300 people attended the annual Hawaiian luau and pig roast for crime prevention hosted by the Alburtis Police Department.

The pig roasted this year weighed 200 pounds, much bigger than the pig for 2015.

Guests enjoyed free hot dogs and freshly roasted pork barbecue sandwiches. The day also featured games, music, door prizes and basket raffles.

Those guests who stayed a while lounged and enjoyed the occasional breeze under the trees or beach umbrellas on the grass while others enjoyed sun bathing or diving off the diving board, swimming or floating around in the pool.

J.P. Mascaro & Sons sponsored the event. Proceeds from the basket raffle benefitted Alburtis Police Department Crime Prevention programs.
