Spooky stories and deep tales will be told at the 25th Annual Talk Story Festival.
This free event, ran by The Department of Parks and Recreations, will be held on October 18 and 19th at the Ala Wai Golf Course. Yes you heard correctly, the event is free. From 6-9:30pm on both nights, story tellers will share their terrifying stories and “deep tales”. The crowds will be big on both of these nights so going early is highly recommended. Doors to the 2nd floor ballroom will be open at 5:00pm on both nights. There will be the best speakers from Hawai’i and the mainland bringing their talents to the stage.
Moses Goods, James McCarthy, Yasu Ishida, and Lyn Ford are just a few names of the people who will be taking the stage. Using dramatic lighting and gifted sign language interpreters, these 20 minute performances will provide an enjoyable evening to all who attends. Jeff Gere, the director, will also be providing a storytelling workshop on saturday from 1-4 pm for anyone who is interested.
This is one of oldest and largest celebrations in Hawai’i. To contact more about this even, contact Jeff Gere at (808)768-3032 or visit their website http://www1.honolulu.gov/parks/programs/talkstory/
