Description

E komo mai (welcome)! The Nevada State Museum is celebrating Lei Day on Saturday, April 30th, from 10 am to 2 pm. In Hawaii, “May Day is Lei Day” and we are sharing this tradition with the northern Nevada community with a lei making demonstration by ʻŌiwi O Hawaiʻi, Northern Nevada Hawaiian Civic Club. Lei Day will include traditional Hawaiian music by the band Pono and a hula performance by the Reno based hālau hula (hula school) Ka Pā Hula ʻO Kawaiolanoelaniokāne. Make sure to bring your sweet tooth as Island Breeze Events LLC will be selling shave ice and ice cream! We will also have hands-on activities for the kids and a temporary exhibit that illustrates the various types of materials used for lei making as well as a brief history of Lei Day. Mahalo (thank you) to our partners at Visit Carson City. This program is funded in part by a grant from Nevada Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
