International Children’s Day Festival

The Aquarium of the Pacific’s tenth annual International Children’s Day is a special festival for kids.

Celebrating the amazing talents of children of all cultures, this festival features West African, Mexican, Pacific Islander, Cambodian, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, and Persian dance performances. Enjoy performances by a children’s choir and martial arts demonstrations. Kids of all ages can partake in an international percussion circle, face painting, and Native American and Pacific Islander traditional children’s crafts and games. The Aquarium will also honor a local youth with its annual Young Hero Award in recognition of his or her efforts to make our planet a better place. Throughout the weekend a musical theater show for all ages called Honu by the Sea will be presented in the Ocean Theater. This Hawai’i-originated musical is about a young Hawaiian surfer who finds a magical sea star that makes his wish to spend a day underwater come true. He meets ocean friends while discovering the need to protect the ocean. Original songs, dances, and colorful costumes inspire viewers to become guardians of the ocean.
