A day just for girls!
Every year on March 3rd Girl’s Day called Hinamatsuri is celebrated in Hawaii.
It is a holiday that originated in Japan and was brought to Hawaii by Japanese immigrants.
In Hawaii, this Japanese tradition has evolved into gift giving to daughters, nieces, and other special girls in one’s life. Girl’s Day represents love, beauty, peace, and happiness. It is an occasion to celebrate all things feminine. It might be fun to plan a Japanese Girl’s Day party for the girls in your family!
Queen Ka’ahumanu Center will celebrate Hinamatsuri or Girl’s Day on Saturday, March 3, 2018, from 10:00am to 12:00noon.
Maui Minyo Kai will be presenting a Japanese Doll display, origami and kanzashi crafts, along with
Japanese folk dancing. Sanrio Ka’ahumanu will have Hello Kitty on hand for photos and will offer an
opportunity for a chance-to-win a $100 Sanrio Gift Basket. Along with our own Maui DJ spinning
popular female artist tunes, Disney-style characters, Poppy and Belle, will also meet and greet our
keiki with pink balloons.
