A rare and smelly plant is blooming on Oahu.
The corpse flower is showing its purple and pungent petals at Foster Botanical Garden.
Some have described its smell as "rotting flesh."
Still, the plant is attracting many people to see and smell for themselves.
The corpse flower blooms every three to five years.
Foster Botanical Garden is open every day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Thousands gathered at the memorial to pay tribute to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice and to those who survived.
You may remember the story we did earlier this week about the Pearl Harbor survivor who was headed here from the mainland for the ceremony, he was bumped from the flight and didn't know if he would get here in time.
It may take drivers a little longer to get around this weekend. On Sunday, there will be lane and road closures for the Honolulu Marathon.
