Museum honors the tradition of lei and flowers

Kauai Museum continues to honor the tradition of lei making as hundreds of people flowed through the historic building to admire the handiwork of Kauai lei makers at the 34th annual Irmalee and Walter Pomroy Lei Contest.

The contest was split into two parts, one for adults coinciding with the traditional May 1 being May Day and the other taking place Saturday as the Third Happy’s Keiki La Lei Contest for young people up to age 18.

Kaiola Canoe Club offered up a traditional Hawaiian plate lunch to satisfy people’s appetites after touring the expansive array of lei created from locally grown material.

Coming on the heels of the successful lei contest, Kauai Museum offers a weeklong Mother’s Day Orchid Sale by Lynn Sato, which started Monday and runs through Sundayunder the big tent set up on the museum’s grounds.
