May Day Celebrations - Aloha Lei Day

May Day is also known as Lei Day in Hawaii where the spirit of Aloha is shared through acts of giving including a symbolic lei exchange by two persons to signify their love, respect and friendship for one another.

Island of Maui

With the imagination of local floral artist Pamakane of Ocean Dreamer, each of the nine leis below were designed using handpicked fresh flowers and plants from Maui’s beautiful diverse scenic settings to honor our 'āina.
