And with Hawaii weather being mostly nice and warm, get ready for a long Halloween evening starting to give out candy around 6pm and lasting till 9pm when the older kids are still roaming the streets of the neighborhood. We would always advise our vacation rental guests to take a break from the Halloween 'extravaganza' and enjoy a dinner at a local restaurant before getting challenged by more trick or treaters.
Speaking of Hawaii Halloween extravaganza, there is one which has become famous over the years - Halloween in Lahaina on Maui! This Maui Halloween celebration has been a tradition since 1990, with each year attracting more spectators. Guys, this is not the regular trick or treating costume crowd for kids.
Just like on the Mainland, Hawaii Halloween shows a trend to attract the adult crowd for partying in crazy, scary Halloween costumes. Between 20,000 and 30,000 Maui residents and visitors show up for Lahaina Halloween wearing their best costumes. You can still buy a scary Halloween costume at LahainaHalloween online for Maui's Front Street Halloween Celebration.
The Lahaina Halloween fun starts at 4:30pm with the children's costume parade. Come early for getting a parking space not far from downtown Lahaina, where the Halloween Costume Contest begins at 7pm in Banyon Tree Park with lots of food and beverage booths (bring your designated driver or spend the night at a downtown hotel!) along with Halloween crafts and live musice on two stages.
Want to see goblins, ghouls, fairies and Frankensteins dancing together in the streets, don't miss the Maui Halloween. Admission is free! Make sure to bring your camera and snap those fun photos of your Halloween party on your Maui vacation. IFlyGo.com offers for Hawaii visitors from other islands a Halloween flight special from Honolulu, Lehui and Kona to Maui for $19 one-way. Hurry before it's too late. Sale ends tonight.
We would love to get some Hawaii vacation photos from your Lahaina Halloween party to show to our blog visitors. Your comments are welcome too. Have a great Halloween in Hawaii. Aloha, Pua Hawaii Vacations
