Al Roker Planted the TODAY Flag in Hawaii for Rokerthon 2

November 11, 2015

Hawaii is the first of the 50 states in Al Roker’s Rokerthon 2 challenge, and was live Waikiki Beach November 6th with a native Hawaiian – a goat!

Al plans to plant a TODAY flag in all 50 states, and he started by planting one in a cake replica of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel.

He delivered the forecast for Hawaii bright and early Friday morning — well, it was bright and early for some of us.

For Al, and the rest of the locals, it was still the wee hours of the day.

But it was a great day.

“Boy, did I get a royal Hawaiian welcome when I arrived,” he told us. “Although they did go a little crazy with the leis.”
