In celebration of Kamehameha Day each June, the local Hawaiian community has prepared leis using many local mid-Atlantic plant materials.

Come learn about Hawaiian traditions and culture. Watch as the Hawaii State Society and other members of the local Hawaiian community make the leis for this year’s Kamehameha Day.
