The County of Maui released a schedule of activities and transportation options for those planning on attending the Halloween in Lahaina 2012 event.

“These are the sorts of events that we want on Maui, good for our small town businesses and communities,” said Mayor Alan Arakawa.

“Because of Halloween on Front Street last year our shops, hotels, restaurants and bars made money, our local families had fun and many of our visitors booked return trips to come back for October 31st again this year.

“We are hoping for another fun and safe event for everyone this year,” Mayor Arakawa said.

The festivities on Front Street include two separate costume contests: the 34th Annual Keiki Costume Parade sponsored by the Soroptimists of West Maui, Rotary Club of Lahaina, and Lahaina Sunrise Rotary; and an adult costume contest, sponsored by Honu Seafood & Pizza, and Mala Ocean Tavern.

There’s also music with DJ Ron at the Banyan Tree Park, and live music with the Whiskey Pimps at Campbell Park.  Both venues are sponsored by Fleetwoods on Front Street.

The County of Maui is working together with the Lahaina Town Action Committee to organize the 2012 event.

Transportation options include shuttles to and from Front Street from Central and South Maui.  The Central Maui pickup will be at the War Memorial Football Stadium Parking Lot; and the South Maui shuttles will depart from the Kalama Park Pavilion Parking Lot near the Foodland intersection.

Tickets for the Halloween Express Shuttle cost $3 each way, and must be purchased in advance.  All ticket sales are on a first come first serve basis, with limited seating available.  Tickets cannot be purchased at the bus pickup point.

Shuttle tickets go on sale beginning on Wednesday, October 17, with sales set to close by 6 p.m. on October 30.

Tickets can be purchased at the Kahului Shell Station Super Stop at 370 Dairy Road; Kihei Shell Station at Blackie’s Pit Stop at 30 Mana’o Kala Street; Lahaina Visitor Center (return tickets only); and the Old Lahaina Courthouse at Banyan Tree Park.

In addition to the Halloween Express Shuttle schedule, the county will also extend its Maui Bus Schedule. For the Maui Bus routes, no reservations are required, and cost is the normal rate of $2 each way, or $4 for an unlimited day pass. Further details are available by clicking on the attached flyer.

  • lone wolf

    And so, now the its the morning after. And all the freeky party people went home. What’s the damage? Is there any? Anybody hear anything? Hows the Hawaiians stuffs? is it damage ? Is it ok? WHAT?????? Now complaining is appropriate….. WHAT????????

    • The Great Pumpkin

      Of course nothing happened. Dancil is off his rocker. In court he couldnt even point to a single incident of damage to any hawaiian historical sites or artifacts. The reality is, he doesnt like young girls with their titties out on front street. Its the video on akaku that started this mess when people who have NEVER been to Lahaina for Halloween got to see what goes down there and decided no one should have fun. The funny thing is, the costumes were more risque this year than ever before. Kind of ironic. :D

  • lone wolf

    I really hope non of the freaky people diddent do anything stupid!!! Cause if they did, nobody is going to have Halloween in lahaina the same again…
    “WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND”… Hope you all had fun!!!! We and the kids did. Trick or treating. :))
