More Lei Day in Honolulu, 1928.

Honolulu, May 1—When the Steamer Maui from San Francisco docked with 87 passengers, and being that it was the day to celebrate lei in the City of Honolulu, lei were brought and the necks of the passengers in Honolulu were adorned with lei, on this famous day to celebrate the Lei of Hawaii.

Lei Day in Honolulu, 1928.

Honolulu was truly festive on this day to wear lei, and so too was the Bank of Hawaii in Honolulu, which was like a lovely flower garden. Most of the maile lei and lehua lei which decorated that display of flower lei were however from Hawaii Island. The single first prize went to Mrs. Liggie [Liggle?] Lee at that show in Honolulu.
