“Halloween is On!” Trick-or-Treating is Back, but Maui Drive Through Events Encouraged
“Halloween is on,” Mayor Victorino said during an afternoon press briefing on Tuesday. “We will allow you to go out and trick-or-treat,” he said, noting that traditional trick-or-treating is okay if families stay within household pods when going out.
While a return to door-to-door traditions is allowed this year, the Mayor is encouraging drive-through options like the “Halloween Drive-Through Adventure at Keōpūolani” Park in Kahului. The event runs from 4:30 to 7 p.m. on Halloween evening, Sunday, Oct. 31, 2021.
“I’d like for you to consider the drive-throughs. They are safer, they’re more fun, more entertaining. You don’t have to worry about your child running across the street. You can have a controlled environment,” said Mayor Victorino. “I want you to consider that, along with having neighborhood ‘block Halloween’ [events]… Whatever you can do to make it a safer Halloween, I appreciate it.”
According to the Mayor, similar events are being held at various other locations and dates including a “Candy Lane” drive-through event at Kings Cathedral in Kahului from 4 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 29.
Other organized events have yet to be announced in Lahaina and Upcountry, Maui.
“We want our kids to have a healthy, safe, and exciting Halloween,” said Mayor Victorino.
More announcements were also made about proposed loosening of restrictions on Maui during Tuesday’s press briefing. Details are posted here.
