A family friendly Halloween event is planned at the Lahaina Cannery Mall in West Maui from 5 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 31, 2014. The event features Halloween magic, trick-or-treating, face painting, crafts and a keiki costume contest.
With the potential for larger crowds in Lahaina this year due to Halloween happening on a Friday night, Mayor Arakawa answers questions about safety measures to ensure a safe and family-friendly event.
There were a total of nine adults and two juveniles arrested at the Halloween event directly related to the evening’s festivities. Officials estimate that there were approximately as many people in attendance this year as there were last year.
Advance tickets go on sale beginning at noon today for the Lahaina Halloween Express shuttle that will operate on Oct. 31 for individuals looking for a way to get to and from the Front Street Halloween festivities.
Judge Rhonda Loo ordered that an injunction hearing involving Halloween festivities in Lahaina be continued until this afternoon to allow attorneys more time to review legal documents. The court proceedings are set to resume at 1:30 p.m. today in 2nd Circuit Court on Maui.
