‘Imiloa Celebrates Halloween with Curious George!

by Brea Aamoth on October 26th, 2015


Hang on to your hats: Curious George is coming to the ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center! Bring the family for a fun-filled morning to screen Curious George: A Halloween Boo Fest on Saturday, October 31, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. The world’s most beloved monkey is a consistent favorite among kids and parents alike and the film will be followed by related science activities in the ‘Imiloa exhibit hall. Costumes are encouraged and all kids who dress up will receive goodie bags compliments of Sky Garden Restaurant.

Shown in Hilo for the first time, this holiday film celebrates curiosity, friendship and the importance of trying new things. Curious George spends his first Halloween in the country where he hears about the “Legend of No-Noggin,” a spooky tale about a scarecrow who steals hats. But is the legend real? George and his friends set forth to find out the truth, and along the way participate in a costume contest and hay ride while experiencing pumpkin patches and the annual Boo Festival.

Tickets for this event are $6.00 for members and $12.00 for non-members. Seating is limited and pre-purchasing tickets is advised. For more information, please call (808) 969-9703 or come in and visit ‘Imiloa’s Guest Services Desk.
