Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday event information

The age of Ghengis Khan comes alive with cultural demonstrations by The Khanate of the Golden Horde and LEGO creations by the LEGO Enthusiasts Association of Hawaii.

Note: Activities end at 3pm


• Kids can launch themselves back in time as they design, test, and fire their own small-scale catapults.


• Watch Khanate of the Golden Horde warriors at battle, and learn how to combat as fiercely as they do! The Khanate of the Golden Horde is a group dedicated to researching and recreating the arts and skills of the 1200s to 1500s. 

• See and compare period weapons and armor from Europe and Asia (Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Mongol and Persian styles).

• Kids can test their aim at the archery range. (Moms, don't worry, kids use safety blunt-tipped arrows.)

• Don't miss the pumpkin catapult and camp of Mongolian tents.

• The LEGO® Enthusiasts Association of Hawaiʻi (LEAHI) show-off their latest creation, a castle fit for a khan.
