How to celebrate Halloween while visiting Hawaii

Anytime is a great time to visit Hawaii and Halloween is no exception. It’s fun to celebrate the holiday’s festivities on a warm, tropical evening as the palm trees gently sway.

If you’re visiting the islands with kids, one the easiest ways to celebrate is to take your kids to a shopping center that’s offering a special event. Children are encouraged to dress in a costume and enjoy trick-or-treating at participating stores. Do check the dates for special Halloween events as many shopping centers host their Halloween parties on a day near October 31st, but may not actually be on the 31st.

The following shopping centers, which are convenient to resort areas, usually offer special Halloween events for children:

In terms of street parties and a place to see and be seen in costume, there are couple of great options in Hawaii:

  • On Maui, check out Lahaina’s Front Street. The street is blocked off for a giant Halloween party with family-friendly activities, live music and more. Check VisitLahaina.com for more information.
  • On Oahu, take a stroll along the sidewalks of Kalakaua Avenue in Waikiki to enjoy the unofficial parade of costumes.

Several bars host Halloween parties. For example in Waikiki, check out RumFire at Sheraton Waikiki and Tiki’s Grill at Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel.

For more advice and specifics, consult with the concierge at your resort. Also, pick up a copy of the local island’s newspaper for haunted houses, Halloween parties and more.
