If you’ve never spent Halloween in Lahaina, start making plans now, this is an event you do not want to miss. For many years on Halloween night, more than 20,000 costumed revelers have converged on Front Street for an evening of spooky fun! This year will be no different.
37th Annual Keiki Parade
The 37th Annual Keiki Parade will kick off the festivities at 4:30 pm. This event is sponsored by Soroptimist of West Maui, The Lahaina Rotary Clubs, and National Kidney Foundation of Hawaii. It will begin at Papalaua and end at Banyan Tree Park where participants will receive a ribbon and a bag of goodies.
It has become customary for the onlookers to throw candy to the kids as they pass by. If you don’t provide the treats, you’ll likely get the mysterious trick they’re all talking about.
As you can probably imagine, everyone gets very creative every year. The goal is to have the flashiest costume that hopefully no one’s ever seen before, like these two ladies. How’s that for creative?
