In honor of King Kamehameha Day the kings statue was draped in lei. Here is a photo of the statue in front of Ali’iolani Hale.  Kamehameha Day is on June 11 and it honors Kamehameha the Great, the monarch who first established the Kingdon of Hawaii. The draping ceremony dates back to 1901 and this statue as well as one on the Big Island of Hawaii are adorned in lei. There also is a similar draping ceremony in the US Capitol where the Kamehameha Statue there is draped in lei too.
