ALOHA FESTIVALS 2017 THEME:  "He lei aloha KE keiki - children are our garland of love"

He Lei Aloha Ke Keiki – Children Are Our Garland of Love.”

 

The 2017 Aloha Festivals celebrates the love for Hawaiʻi’s children and future with “He Lei Aloha Ke Keiki – Children Are Our Garland of Love.” Throughout ʽōlelo noʽeau (Hawaiian proverbs) there are poetic references to children as flower (pua) and garland (lei) for their promise and need for nurturing in order for them to thrive. The entire ʻohana (family) from grandparents to keiki (children) are invited to create enduring memories and experiences of Hawaiʻi’s rich cultural history and traditions during the 2017 Aloha Festivals in September.
