HONOLULU (KITV4) - May Day, or “Lei Day” as it is known in Hawaii, is a statewide celebration of the Aloha Spirit and it is a cultural tradition that goes back to decades.

People celebrate with flowers, hula and music. This day has evolved into parades, lei contests, and presenting them at royal courts. Royal courts consist of a “lei queen” and many princesses representing each island, its color, and flower.
