Fresh 'snow' and LEGO takes over holiday theme parties in Kaka'ako
Ten tons of "fresh powder" were available for kids to play in.
It was cool enough to bust out the boots and winter clothes at Our Kaka'ako Sunday as a special "snow day" had families lining up around the block.
There was 10 tons -- 20,000 pounds -- of fresh powder for kids to play in.
Kamehameha Schools put on the event to help parents as well. Regional director Kalei Kailihiwa said "we are here because we believe that early learning is so important. The first five years of a child's life are foundational for the future learning, and if we can get people in the same place learning about the partners and programs that provide early learning, we believe that's a good investment of time and resources."
And just a block away at SALT at Our Kaka'ako offered up LEGO themed games for the keiki and parents.
There was everything from a fire walk to an all-familiar train.
"HART, or the Honolulu Rapid Transit people, are here telling us about what's coming with the train," said Roy Gal. "Showing them a model may inspire them to ride it one day when they grow up."
The event was sponsored by Hawaii LEGO Users Group. The group says more LEGO events will be offered at Salt at Our Kaka'ako in the future.
