Hula Arts At Kilauea: Aloha Friday Program
The lei is a Hawaiian flower garland that is worn for many different special occasions. The lei also represents and symbolizes a variety of celebrations from friendship, love, welcoming, departures and everything in between. Come join agriculture farmer Kaipo AhChong on the front porch of Volcano Art Center Gallery for an expert lei-making experience. Kaipo will share his expert lei-making skills with Volcano Art Center Gallery visitors and Kama aina alike. As a member of Halau Na Kamalei, his unique experience marries the science of agriculture with Hawaiian lei and hula traditions. This is a free event held on the fourth Friday of every month; park entrance fees apply.
