Nowadays, Halloween is one of the most well-known holidays across America. On the contrary, it wasn’t until the 19th century that Halloween made its way to the United States. This holiday eventually became one of the most profitable times of the year. Many people know October 31st as a night of costumes, candy, and frightening fun. The celebration of Halloween provides an opportunity for all ages to dress up in a funny, scary, creative, or a decent manner. People have a variety of choices on where and how to celebrate Halloween. You can go trick-or-treating, Halloween parties, and/or haunted houses. Thrilling Halloween events that are held throughout Big Island include the ‘Ohana Halloween Pa’ina, located at the Keauhou Shopping Center. To add, the infamous Kohala “Pumpkin Patch” and the “Corn Maze Race,”  is always a family favorite.
To further describe family activity options, the ‘Ohana Halloween Pa’ina at the Keauhou shopping center welcomes all ages to the event. Families and friends can stroll around and trick-or-treat with the younger children. They could also participate in the costume competition, with the chance to win cool prizes. If your children are too young to trick-or-treat, they can be taken to the Keiki Fun Zone. The event also serves food and live entertainment. If you live out south, Ho’okena Elementary School holds a “Trunk-or-Treat” event on Halloween night. At the event, you can walk around the main school area near the cafeteria and truck-or-treat out of the trunks of Hookena school staff and volunteer members communal vehicles. You can also go into the cafeteria at the school and carve out a pumpkin to take home.
