2nd Saturday in May

Straw Hat Day marks the point when your day-to-day felt hats should be put away (until the Felt Hat Day on September 15th), and when you start start to wear a straw hat instead to keep cool (in both senses of the word!); modern research has tended to show, however, that straw hats aren’t nescessarily any cooler or better protection from the sun than other hat types.
