My daughter’s costume is set, my son has three (yes THREE) costumes to choose from and I even have a little something that involves a tail and ears to put on. I LOVE Halloween and especially love that you get to be a kid again…and steal a few candies from the kid’s loot ;)
Here are some great happening around West Maui if you are on island for Hallows Eve.
The Hyatt’s Haunted House & Hula Grill Costume Contest
This looks so fun! The Hyatt, located at the very south end of Kaanapali Beach, is holding a haunted house. I asked, and costumes are welcomed but not required. After you are done, head down to Hula Grill for their annual night-before-Halloween festivities and costume contest!

The Harvest Festival in Kapalua
Sponsored by Kumalani Church, this event is always a kid pleaser. It’s safe, fun and always gets you in the Halloween mood. Offering family friendly game booths, bounce houses, and prizes, kids through 5th grade are welcomed to come dressed as their favorite character and enjoy some small town fun with hotdogs, candy and popcorn to nibble on. The harvest takes place on Tuesday October 30th from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at The Barn off of Office Road in Kapalua (near the Ritz Carlton). Admission is free.
The Keiki Parade in Lahaina Town
This is FUN! Front Street in Lahaina Town gets closed off as the keiki dressed as their favorite ghouls, super heroes and princesses take over. The Keiki parade starts at 4:30 p.m. on Halloween at the corner of Hard Rock Cafe. Spectators line the historic street and throw candy at the passing keiki. The parade ends at the Banyan Tree where kids can cross the stage and receive a ribbon for participating. Keiki ghost stories, face painting, a costume contest and live music round out the kid-friendly activities.
Front Street is then open for the older adult crowd to party the Halloween night away.
Trick or Treating at The Lahaina Cannery Mall
If you are looking for some safe, bustling, candy filled fun…that’s in A/C (score!), head to the Lahaina Cannery Mall. This is not your typical shopping center Halloween activity – plain and simple, it goes off! Festivities include face painting, a magic show by Kupanaha and merchants handing out candy. The fun starts at 5 p.m. Enjoy some grub after the fun at LuLu’s in the same shopping center.
