Lei Day at the ASYMCA


HI-HQ-2022-NMAMLeiDay v2

May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii and we're kicking off the month is style!


Lei Day is an annual celebration in Hawai`i, held on the first day of May. It's a celebration of Hawaiian culture and the aloha spirit. People commonly celebrate by giving gifts of leis to one another. Local elementary schools also put on plays and elect a Lei Day court of Kings and Queens to represent the different islands.


All ASYMCA Hawaii Branches will host "Lei Day at the ASYMCA" on Monday, May 2, 2022 from 9 to 10am. Participants will learn how to make a simple lei made of orchids, plumeria, or tuberous. Light refreshment will be provided. Event is for adults.




Contact the ASYMCA Hawai`i Branch closest to you with any questions.
