May Day - Lei Day, Hawaii

Stock Photography By Doris Miocinovic

May 1st, or May Day is a Lei Day in Hawaii. The first Lei Day was held in 1928 after a writer & poet Don Blanding & the writer Grace Tower Warren came up with the idea that a holiday be created centered around the Hawaiian custom of making & wearing lei in conjunction with May Day. Each year on O`ahu, Lei Day festivities are centered in Queen Kapi`olani Park in Waikiki on May 1st. As is tradition, the entries in the annual contest are judged & placed at the Royal Mausoleum in Nuuanu next morning
