Halloween - At Front Street Lahaina, and all over Maui

About two years ago, I told my husband "I have been living on Maui for 10 years (more or less), and I have not once gone to the Front Street for Halloween - I've got to do it at least once". And so we did. We went in 2005. Having kids though, I main focus was the "children's parade" and we did not stay for the later night "mardi grass" type celebration.

Are you planning on going to Lahanina this year for Halloween? We are not. We did it once, and once is good enough for me. But for many, it's a fun place to be (I guess especially for the young and single).

The Front Street Halloween celebration almost got banned this year (or some people asked for it). Back in August some members of the Native Hawaiian community requested that the Halloween celebration not be held in this historical site. However, the Maui County Cultural Resource Commission did not grant that request after a hearing was held about it.

So, back to Halloween celebration, instead of going to Front Street, we are going to Hope Chapel's Hallelujah Party. If you have kids, that's a great event to go - there are lots of candies, some rides, lots of games and fun prizes. You'll see kids and adults in fun and creative costumes. It's a blast.

Both my kids already have their costumes ready. They're set! Are you?
