This year marks the 93rd Annual Lei Day celebration in the Hawaiian Islands. The tradition highlights the art and craftsmanship of lei makers, allowing them to demonstrate their skill and beautiful artwork. By showcasing a unique element of local culture, May Day honors the rich history of the Hawaiian people.
Lei Day began in 1927 with just a few people wearing lei in downtown Honolulu. The holiday has since grown into a recognized event complete with organized exhibits, competitions, and festivities. Today, Lei Day features lei making demonstrations, lei contests, and live entertainment from the Hawaiian Steel Guitar Association. By dedicating a day to the celebration of local artists, Lei Day provides a moment of reflection and appreciation for the beauty of Hawaii and its culture. So remember, May 1st is a day to give and receive lei and ultimately a day to spread the Aloha spirit!
