Kamaaina Kids is partnering with the Children & Youth Organization to celebrate our keiki at the 25th Children and Youth Day.

In 1997, retired Senator Chun Oakland and House Representative Dennis Mizuno wanted to acknowledge the good works of Hawaii children and youth.

 All 50 states celebrate the first Sunday of October for children and youth.

 However, Hawaii is the only state which created a law to honor our children for the entire month of October.

The day is full of activities related to children and youth and includes games, crafts, entertainment, and food.

The celebration will take place at the Iolani Palace, State Capitol, surround blocks including Queen’s Hospital, Hawaii State Library, State Art Museum, Kalanimoku building, Honolulu Hale, and the Judiciary Building.
