The Lei Day Parade returns to the streets of Downtown Summerlin on Wednesday, May 1 at 6 p.m. The parade, created to celebrate and kick off Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, has become an honored annual tradition. 

In addition to performances from various culture organizations such as the Ancient Hula Kahiko accompanied by a chanter who tells the story; the free-flowing modern style of Hula Auana; the passion and pride of the Māori Haka; the rapid hip-shaking movements of the Tahitian Dances, we invite guests to experience and taste the islands.

Celebrated Chef Roy Ellamar from Fine Company is a native from Hawaii. His restaurant and menu bursts with flavor that braids in family heritage and tradition that’s evident in every bite. According to Chef Roy, Fine Company is all about community, bringing people together through great food and company.

So we had to ask the notable chef and foodie — what does Lei Day mean to you? 

Quote from Chef Roy, Fine Company: 

“Lei Day is a time to celebrate the Islands of Hawaii, our traditions and cultural heritage. It is also a time to honor the symbolism of the lei as a gesture of genuine hospitality and to give and receive Aloha through the making and giving of lei.” 

We invite you all to stop in at Fine Company on Wednesday, May 1 to indulge in a special cocktail: The Hilo Hibiscus Punch. It will be served in a capri sun style drink pouch, available to purchase on Lei Day ONLY for $6!

Hilo Hibiscus Punch: hibiscus tea, tangerine cordial, pineapple juice

Cheers to a month of celebrating the spirit of Aloha!
