The first of May is a celebration of lei in Hawaiian culture. Last year, we were fortunate to join in the annual celebration at Marriott’s Waiohai Beach Club on Kauai. We enjoyed seeing a lei making competition, a royal court procession, hula and cultural presentations.
If you visit Hawaii during Lei Day, check local papers for island events. With Lei Day falling on a Sunday this year, some annual celebrations may be observed on another day.
