CRAIG — The Northwest Colorado Chapter of Parrotheads put on their grass skirts for the group’s seventh annual Luau at the Lake on Saturday at Elkhead Reservoir.

The luau began when the group was planting trees near the reservoir, Parrotheads Quartermaster Dory Brown said. Members were trying to reintroduce the ponderosa pine to the area when they discovered a “hidden gem.” They decided to host a luau at the reservoir to help promote the lake.

“We want to celebrate music and the environment,” Brown said. “We at the Parrotheads like to have a good time.”

The Parrotheads is a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising money for charity, preserving the environment, undertaking community projects, and having an interest in the style and music of Jimmy Buffett, according to the Parrotheads’ website.
