The Search for Snoopy
Opens in March | Hours TBA
For all of you who have had the urge to yell “AAUGH!” recently (who hasn’t?), this is just what the psychiatrist ordered—the type of psychiatrist with a booth offering advice for 5 cents, that is. HONOLULU is teaming up with Kilburn Live to make Honolulu the first stop for this interactive installation starring Charles Schulz’s beloved characters. Scream in Charlie Brown’s closet, talk mwah mwah mwah mwahh-style in the Peanuts classroom, walk into Snoopy’s doghouse and more.
Ticket price TBA, Ala Moana Center, next to Buffalo Wild Wings, searchforsnoopy.com
Experts at the Cathedral Series

Queen Lili‘uokalani called several places home and this month, the Historic Hawai‘i Foundation and UH Mānoa’s virtual talks and tours teach us about four of them. On March 3, learn about three Waikīkī houses that sadly no longer exist but were significant places in her life. March 10, the focus is on ‘Iolani Palace with a talk by the palace’s historian, Zita Cup Choy.
