DID YOU KNOW?
May Day is Lei Day in Hawai`i! May Day celebrations in Hawai`i got their start in 1928 when a writer from Oklahoma joined forces with another Hawaii newspaper writer and came up with the idea of honoring the tradition of the lei. On May 1, 1928, the first Lei Day was held on Oahu in the lobby of Bank of Hawai`i and featured a lei competition featuring the flowers and colors of the islands as designated in 1923 by Hawaiʻi’s Territorial Legislature. Ever since this inaugural lei competition in 1928, Hawai`i continues to celebrate May Day with lei competitions, May Day courts, mele, and hula. Keep an ear out for May Day programs around the island. Several of the shopping centers in Kona and on the Kohala Coast are holding special events. The Waikoloa Beach Resort held a lei-making event with the goal of creating a 5-mile-long lei.
