The very first Lei Day was held May 1, 1927. This now annual event is celebrated across the islands with music, food, and festivals taking place. Each island has a different type of lei that is worn for the celebration. Maui celebrates with the lokelani Lei. A light pink sweetly scented flower.
Here on Maui, the celebration will continue through Friday with a concert by Brothers Cazimero at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center. This is a May Lei Day annual tradition. Concert time is 7:30 pm.
Have fun today celebrating the true Aloha spirit of the lei!
