The Family Tent at the Hawaiian Airlines Liberty Challenge is open to parents and children throughout the day during the festival. Activities allow children to learn about the various cultures of the Pacific Islands through storytelling, ukelele lessons, dance and arts & crafts. All activities are free.
“Ohana” is the Hawaiian word for family and “keiki” is the Hawaiian word for child. The Family Tent strives to create an inclusive ohana for all the parents and children to visit.
