The Keiki Caucus and its co-chairs, Sen. Suzanne Chun Oakland and Rep. John Mizuno, invite you to celebrate Hawaii's Children and Youth Month starting with "Children and Youth Day" on Oct. 7.
The fun starts at 10 a.m. and goes until 3 p.m. at the State Capitol, Honolulu Hale, Kalanimoku Building Grounds, Hawaii State Art Museum, Iolani Palace and Washington Place. Events include lauhala weaving, hands-on art activities with recyclable materials and a film festival featuring Hawaii's top young filmmakers. (You can even check out where we work on a free tour of the State Capitol.)
Click here for a full list of events throughout the month, including a 22-foot giant slide, cyclone swing, toymaking and robotics, train rides around the State Capitol and a Yu-Gi-Oh card game Tournament with a Nintendo DS giveaway. (Best way to find out what that means might be to ask your kids...)
The Keiki Caucus was created in 1994 and is made up of Senators and Representatives. They sponsor Children and Youth Month each year, dedicated to events that inspire Hawaii's keiki. The best part is, it's FREE.
For more information, please call 586-6130.
