Halloween in Kailua: Lots of Scary Fun!
Trick or Treat Neighborhoods
Festivities for Halloween in Kailua would not be complete without lots of trick or treating on Halloween Night, Wednesday October, 31, around Kailua’s various neighborhoods. Many neighborhoods feature great trick or treating environments. Three Kailua neighborhoods, in particular, are known for being extra friendly to trick or treaters and lots of fun.
Aikahi Park trick or treating is prolific, especially when Halloween occurs on a weekend. This is one of the best areas of Kailua for trick or treating and many kids drive into the area from other neighborhoods. Aikahi Park is nice on Halloween because there are no hills, there are sidewalks, and the neighbors are friendly and usually many will participate in the festivities.
Lanikai is a tight-knit community, right on the beach, and neighbors rave about Halloween there. Some people open the gates of their grand estates (I have heard) and have amazing treats and decorations. Lanikai is a little less kid-friendly because there are no sidewalks, but still will provide a great Halloween in Kailua experience.
Enchanted Lake is similar to Aikahi Park, but on the other side of Kailua. The neighborhood of Enchanted Lake has friendly neighbors, lots of kids, no hills, and nice sidewalks. It is not usually as busy as Aikahi. This is still one of the best areas of Kailua for trick or treating. On Paokano Street, near Iana Street, there is an Annual Mini-Haunted House, as well! This Haunted House, this year themed “Creatures of the Night” is free and is, typically, not overly gory. It is usually suitable even for small kids and I would describe it as more spooky than scary. I actually find it quite entertaining, short and sweet, but still lots of fun! Come join in the Halloween in Kailua festivities!
HOPE YOU HAVE A SAFE AND FUN HALLOWEEN IN KAILUA, OR WHEREVER HOME IS FOR YOU!
