This 11th day of June is one of the important days for Hawaiians, cherished and greatly displayed amongst the holidays of the land. This day was established by Kamehameha V as a day of remembrance for his royal kupuna Kamehameha I, the conqueror of the nation who unified all of the islands to be governed under one alii.
One of the greatest festivities of this day is at the race tracks at Kapiolani Park, because the entertainments are assembled in a program throughout the day there. Therefore it will be a place where many people will be today.
