Ready, Set, Scare! It's that time of year again; where ghouls and goblins come out to haunt the streets in search of goodies and good times. In typical Maui fashion, this means taking over a major West Maui hotspot for a huge (multi)block party suitable for all ages!
Once again, Lahaina's famed Front Street will play host to Maui's premiere Halloween festivities this October 31st. From 3:30pm until Midnight, Front Street will be closed to vehicular traffic as residents and visitors alike flock to this popular destination for an evening of candy fuelled fun! Festivities kick off at 4:30pm with the 35th Annual Keiki (kids) Costumes Parade at Campbell park. Following the parade, official costume contests, open to all ages, begin at 6:00pm and continue throughout the night! Whether you plan on entering a contest or just plan to admire all the wonderful and unique costumed characters, shops on Front Street will be open throughout the night offering Halloween specials, giveaways, and more. Along with the shops, the Street's many eateries will also be open for business throughout the night offering up great eats, along with a selection of additional food vendors from across the island.
Helping you groove as you make your way up and down Front Street will be a number of Dj's and performers providing live musical entertainment throughout the night.
Whether you live in a nearby oceanfront luxury home in Kapalua, or are staying at any of the fantastic beachfront condos in Kaanapali, you do not want to miss this year's awesome Halloween on Front Street event. See you there!
