Photos of Hawaiian Flag Day Event!

July 31, 2010

Today visitors and island residents enjoyed a great time at Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park‘s 1st ever Hawaiian Flag Day Event. Titled La Ho`i Ho`i Ea (The day that independence was restored), this event celebrated the unique history and story of Hawaii’s flag. The flag of Hawaii was commissioned by King Kamehameha the Great in the early 1800’s and has been the official flag of the Kingdom, Republic, Territory and State of Hawaii. Check out the photos below (more will be added, so check back soon!)

Visitors enjoyed live performances by local musicians outside of the park's visitor center.

"Da shave ice broke da mouth!" (Translations for those on the Mainland, "The snow cones were awesome!")

Visitors had the chance to see how poi was made traditionally by local demonstrators.
