HONOLULU, HAWAI‘I—Halloween is just around the corner and the Honolulu Museum of Art is ready to celebrate at Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday: Hocus Pocus on Sunday, Oct. 21. Kids are encouraged to come in their most festive costume!

If they don't have one yet, don't worry. Keiki can make their own unicorn tails and horns with ribbons and sparkling fabric. 

Once properly in costume, kids can create a Halloween-themed lantern using tissue paper, a plastic cup and an LED tealight. 

Guests can head down to the Education Lecture Hall to get their groove on in a silent disco from Hawaii Dance Bomb. Each person will be given a pair of wireless stereo headphones that can switch between three different music channels. 

From 10:45-11:45am, guests can catch magician Harvey Ouchi in Gallery 30 (next to the Education Lecture Hall) to see what tricks he has up his sleeve!

See the full schedule.

About Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday
Since 2004, the third Sunday of every month at the Honolulu Museum of Art has been free to the public, thanks to Bank of Hawaii. Each event features a program of art activities, entertainment and demonstrations held throughout the museum. See more information about the event.

Families can ride the museum’s free shuttle up to Spalding House in Makiki Heights, where the museum has more free art fun. Kids can join Nancy Kulp for storytelling and make Halloween candy bags for trick-or-treating with recycled t-shirts and iron-on adhesive cutouts.
