He ninau....

"the day of the song fest" made me think the translation was "ka lā o ka aha mele." Yes "ka lāaha mele" is the correct answer. Can someone help with an explanation of the grammar?
I think of "ka lā `aha mele" as "song fest day" and not "day of song fest."
Please advise and thank you.

I bet "... ka lā o ka ʻaha mele" isn't really all that bad. I see someone else made the same mistake, but I doubt it is a matter of grammar. Probably more one of customary wording.
