Today is Kamehameha Day in Hawaii. It is a State Holiday there.

Today is June 11th, 2012 - Kamehameha Day in Hawaii!

I think this would be a GREAT day to be in Hawaii. They have "lei-draping, dancing, and King Kamehameha the Great's statues are draped in lei's. Also, games, fairs, and tours are held.

This is a beautiful photo of Oahu, Hawaii.

King Kamehameha the Great united all the Hawaiian islands in the 1700's, giving more of a political identity to Hawaii.

This holiday sounds really nice, and is a State holiday there in Hawaii.
