Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday event information

May is National Bike Month! Join the museum and the Hawaii Bicycling League for a day of two-wheel fun.


Make a bike-inspired print: Visitors can design decorative fabric prints using bike gear stencils and fabric crayons. They can overlap a variety of bicycle-inspired shapes and patterns. When the colorful design is complete they’ll be ready to take the fabric to the next station to make a drawstring backpack. 

Make a drawstring backpack: Visitors will learn how to create this fun and easy mini-backpack using folding techniques and tacky glue instead of a needle or thread.

Inner tube printing with Honolulu Printmakers: Print a mini book with fun geometric shapes cut from bicycle inner tubes. Make a landscape, a book of patterns, or an ocean scene.


Balance bikes in Central Courtyard: Designed for children who don't know how to ride a bike or who still use training wheels, these bikes focus on balancing while scooting around. We will have six bikes available.

Free bike valet: Ride to the museum and don't worry about parking! Hawaii Bicycling League & K-Vibe are providing secure bike parking outside the front entrance on Beretania St.

Hawaii Bicycling League in Thomas Square: Head across the street for HBL's bike rodeo for kids age 3 to 13! Kids can work on handling skills and etiquette by riding through a cone course. HBL staff will guide young riders on everything from riding in a straight line (not easy for beginners!) to avoiding potholes and signaling. Scoot bikes for the youngest riders, fourth-grade-size bikes, and giant tricycles for seniors will be available, as well as helmets. Then HBL staff will lead families up and down the new King Street Cycle Track, which has just been divided for two-way riding.


Take a shuttle bus to the museum’s free Family Day at Spalding House in Makiki Heights!
