Starting at 6 p.m., the spirit of the tropics will overtake Northwest Colorado as the night kicks off, with everyone asked to wear their most aloha-worthy attire as part of a costume contest, be it a floral shirt and shorts or a grass skirt.

Fire Chief KC Hume himself will provide music throughout the night, which also includes food, drinks, a limbo contest and plenty of door prizes.

Hume said the longstanding tradition of the Firefighters’ Ball has evolved a bit from a formal event primarily benefiting the agency into one that in recent years has maintained a laid-back atmosphere while raising money for a separate cause, in this case a scholarship fund from Fire/Rescue for local students graduating high school.

“We invite the whole community to come out and mingle with the firefighters and support a good cause,” Hume said.

Tickets are $10 apiece for the luau, which is restricted to ages 21 and older, and can be purchased from any Craig firefighter or at the fire station at 419 Yampa Ave.

For more information, call 970-824-5914.
