Lei Day is Hawaii's version of May Day, and while Hawaii marks it with floats and parades, Denvers version will have a lei fashion show, food from L&L Hawaiian Barbecue, and the Kalama Polynesian Dancers presenting a native showcase from Hawaii, Tahiti, Samoa and New Zealand.
The event kicks off with three workshops at 4 p.m.: a lei-making class for $15 and Tahitian and Samoan dance workshops for $10 each. Dinner and the show begin at 5 p.m.; admission is $25 for adults, $20 for children twelve and under, or $40 for a VIP ticket, which includes a workshop, reserved seating, a cocktail and a fresh flower lei greeting.
Advanced tickets can be purchased at Little Grass Shack or, for $5 more, at the door on the day of the event. Reservations for the workshops are recommended. For more information, call 720-974-4090 or visit www.spreadingaloha.com.
