Halloween Fun on Oahu is very much like Halloween in all the other states. In the islands, we become very much like mainlanders when celebrating Halloween.
Mainlanders brought the Halloween tradition to the islands of Hawaii but who brought it to the mainland?
Halloween is one of the world's oldest celebrations, dating back about 2,000 years and originated in Ireland . When Rome ruled the world, the tradition spread.
There will be Halloween events in and around Honolulu as well as the rest of the island. There are many haunts to be visited on our island. You may see a ghost at the Hawaii's Haunted Plantation, a spirit reflected in the water when you ride a canoe at the Polynesian Cultural Center's Haunted Lagoon, and you could be in for a big shock at the Shockhouse, Haunted Mansion.
If you enjoy guidance when visiting the "spirit world", a guided tour may be more to your liking. A select few will be able to enjoy the Orbs of Oahu Graveyard Shift Tour. This is reported to be "very scary", indeed. Unfortunately, the Spookapalooza Train Ride has been already been booked out, but you may still be able to get a reservation for the Haunted Hawaii Ghost Ship Cruise which also offers a stay in a haunted wing at the Makaha Golf Resort.
For the more faint of heart and fun-loving people, there will be two street fairs that you can attend. The Hallobaloo Halloween Street Festival will be held in the Honolulu Arts District and the Streets of Waikiki will be filled with costumed revelers. The streets of Honolulu will also be seeing an Undead Invasion Honolulu Halloween Chase.
Several of our malls and shopping centers will be hosting safe Treat-o-Treat events. Shopping centers include: Ala Moana Center, Koko Marina Mall, Mililani Town Center Halloween Activities, Pearlridge Mall, and the Windward Mall.
Whatever you choose to do as your special Halloween fun on Oahu - enjoy and be safe!
