The COVID-19 pandemic is reshaping the way we celebrate the holiday season this year, including shopping for Christmas presents.

With that in mind, ʻImiloa Astronomy Center is hosting a unique experience for shoppers with its Kūʻai Hele Kalikimaka: Virtual Christmas Shopping Experience from December 7 to 10. Each shopper gets a 30-minute, one-on-one curated shopping session via Zoom. Members and the general public are invited to participate.

The ʻImiloa Astronomy Center has been closed since March 2020 due to COVID-19 concerns. The center created an online shopping platform in late September that allows the purchase of items such as books, educational kits and games, apparel and a variety of items by local artists.
