The first Lei Day was in 1927 (the Academy Awards began in 1929) and celebrated in downtown Honolulu with a few people wearing lei. From that it grew and more and more people began to wear lei on May 1. We are told that the first celebration and exhibit of lei was at the Bank of Hawaii. In 1928, the first lei queen was Nina Bowman. Mayor Charles Arnold crowned Lei Queen Nina Bowman here in Honolulu. On May 1st of each year, this beautiful event is at Kapiolani Park in Waikiki from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
