The Punahou School Carnival is closed to the public, but here’s how you can participate
HONOLULU (KHON2) — Although the Punahou School Carnival is closed to the public this year, they can still participate in the virtual silent auction and art gallery.
The school carnival is used to raise funds to support students and families with financial aid. Last year, the carnival took place virtually for the first time since the annual tradition began in 1932. While things are different again this year, the class of 2023 still hopes to raise funds to support students.
