Waikīkī Aquarium Family Fun Night
From infants to UH students, everyone saw a dragon of sorts

Diana Lorge

Issue date: 9/6/07 Section: Mixed Plate
       A child's fantasy world came together at the Waikīkī Aquarium on
Aug. 31, as sharks swam behind a puppet show presented by volunteers
from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa's Theatre Department. Amid the
aquatic music and visual splendor, countless children skipped through the
aquarium's exhibits with excited and eager faces.
       "Family Night: Sea Dragons" was one of many family classes offered
at the aquarium for parents and children to share learning experiences
together. Children learned to make sea dragon puppets alongside characters
from Kennedy Theatre's "Kraken Ka, the Komodo Dragon and Other Pacific
Rim Dragon Tales" while also learning about actual sea dragons from
biologists at the aquarium.
