Halloween on Maui
Just because you’re not in the cold, rainy and leaf-changing atmosphere many of us have come to know Halloween as, doesn’t mean there isn’t some of the best “Halloweening” in paradise on Maui.
The Valley Island goes all out for the holiday, actually, and if you’re up for festivities of all kinds, you are in the right place. We’ve listed some of the biggest happenings for Halloween below!
Lahaina Town has one of the biggest Halloween parties on island. If you want to be where the action is, get to Front Street, which becomes known as the Mardi Gras of the Pacific at Halloween. People will be walking around in their costumes. Local bars, restaurants and shops all participate, with many having contests and prizes for the best costumes. A children’s parade takes place around 4 pm.
One of our favorite spots no matter what is going on, Mulligan’s is located in Wailea. This year, there is a Bones, Thugs-N-Harmony Halloween concert. Advanced ticket sales are available and costumes are encouraged, of course!

This family-friendly event runs from 3-6 pm on Sunday, October 29th and includes a keiki (kids) and pet costume contest with prizes and after the contest, families and children are invited to stroll The Shops for a special trick-or-treat in their costumes.
