Parade to pay homage to Asian Pacific American Heritage Month
Downtown Summerlin® is excited to announce Lei Day, a new parade to celebrate and kick off Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and the rich heritage of the Hawaiian and Pacific Islands. This fun, colorful and visual parade is set for Sunday, May 1 at 6 p.m.
The parade, in partnership with BESTAgency, will feature local organizations including Nani ola Hawaiian dance company, Na hula o kaleiokapualani and Tevakanui Polynesian Dance Company.
Parade watchers will experience performances 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 and much more!
“This marks a new parade addition for the property and one we are very excited to share with the community,” stated Halee Harczynski, senior director, marketing, Downtown Summerlin. “Working with these local organizations to understand and pay homage to the rich Asian Pacific culture has been inspiring. It’s a wonderful addition to our destination and one we hope everyone will attend to share in the Aloha spirit!”
The Lei Day parade takes place on Park Centre Drive. Festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. with the parade at 6:00 p.m. The parade is complimentary and open to the public.
