Surround Yourself With Blooms

Essential KauaiKauai

What better way to show your aloha spirit than with a FLOWER LEI ? Lei of all sorts can be found around the necks of many kama‘āina (locals) during annual MAY DAY FESTIVALS (around May 1 annually, and known locally as “Lei Day”). Lei displays and even competitions also are a part of the celebrations.

Other days of the year, one can find lei at lei stands, florists, farmers markets and even at island grocery stores.

Many hotels and resorts off er lei-making classes, sometimes for free. Ask your concierge if there’s a class nearby.
