Free Lei-Making Workshops
Have you ever wanted to learn how to make your own leis? Well, now you can! Several free lei-making workshops will be offered in various locations during the month of April. This is all leading up to the Lei Day Celebration on May 1. Participants are instructed to bring flowers with three-inch stems, green leaves, an aluminum pan, a water spray bottle, thread, and scissors. All participants will be encouraged to enter their leis in the upcoming Lei Day Celebration.
