Each Friday we feature a Hawaii vacation photo from one of our readers. Whether it’s your first ever Hawaii pic or that one photo you’ve been waiting all your life to capture, we want to see it!
We started Aloha Friday Photos on January 29, 2010. Since then, this weekly feature has become a reader favorite.
If you would like to submit your photo, please send your file (preferably non-watermarked) to GoVisitHawaii at gmail DOT com. Alternatively, if you’re on Facebook, you can load your photo to the Go Visit Hawaii Facebook wall.
In addition to the photo, please include:
– your name (an actual person’s name — not a business name) and your home town (optional) as you would like for it to appear in the Aloha Friday Photo post. We want to credit you the way you want to be credited.
– where you took the photo
– (optional) any information that you want to add about your photo and your trip
– if you have a related/relevant website, please include the URL for our consideration.
Please note that we regret that we are unable to publish photos with a person or persons as the focus or feature of a photo.

What is Aloha Friday?
If you are not familiar with the term Aloha Friday, we want to introduce you to its awesomeness! In Hawaii, Aloha Fridays are the welcoming of the weekend. It’s a celebration of the end of the work week and a greeting to get into a relaxed, weekend state of mind.
There’s even a happy, kinda kitschy Aloha Friday song that you may hear on the radio on Fridays in Hawaii. It’s simply called “It’s Aloha Friday.” The following YouTube video plays the song.
Happy Aloha Friday!
