Punahou Carnival 2018 "Haku" Lei

Punahou pre-carnival "haku" lei making begins the Tuesday and Wednesay before the Carnival starts on Friday.  Lei makers and helpers come together in Dole cafeteria to make as many lei as possible to sell during Carnival weekend.  It's a tradition, it's fun and a great get-together for everyone.

This is just part of the busy cafeteria where people are either prepping the flowers or making lei.
