Where Maui - - Contents -

Par­tic­i­pate in one of the is­land’s rich tra­di­tions and present some­one with a fra­grant lei.

Ev­ery year since 1929, the Hawai­ian Is­lands have rec­og­nized May 1 as Lei Day. As pro­claimed by the late-Gov. Wallace Rider Far­ring­ton, Lei Day was a day to “ob­serve and honor the tra­di­tions of Hawai‘i-nei by wear­ing and dis­play­ing lei.” Although the event is once a year, lo­cals con­tinue the cul­ture of giv­ing a lei to any­one cel­e­brat­ing a spe­cial oc­ca­sion. Visit any gro­cery store in Maui for a sweet­smelling flower lei and give it to some­one you love.
