Did you know? Kamehameha Day was proposed to honor King Kamehameha V on his birthday, Dec. 11. Rather than take the honor himself, the then-reigning king chose to honor his grandfather, Kamehameha the Great, on June 11, as far away from his own birthday as possible. That’s why people are draping lei on the big, golden statue instead of a statue of King Kamehameha V. The lei-draping ceremony takes place at 3 p.m. June 11 in front of Aliiolani Hale, with the parade and hoolaulea on Saturday.
