“Our Hawaiian Mega Hula event was a huge success last year and guests raved about their luau adventure on the Salt River,” Salt River Tubing’s President/C.E.O. Henri Breault said in the release. “The event is an attention-grabber for teens and families and encourages them to venture into the great outdoors. June is a perfect time to enjoy a floating picnic on the Lower Salt River and our company is excited about creating a Hawaiian atmosphere for a unique voyage.”
The Hawaiian Mega Hula event is aligned with the USDA Forest Service’s “More Kids in the Woods” commitment in meeting the challenge of reduced youth involvement in outdoor activities. The program was expressly designed to encourage efforts to get kids and teens outdoors in their national Forests, according to the release.
