Let’s Trick or Treat Together at the Queen Kaʻahumanu Center
The Queen Kaʻahumanu Center hosts “Let’s Trick or Treat Together,” an evening of family Halloween festivities scheduled for Monday, Oct. 31 from 5 to 7 p.m.
Children 12 years of age and younger are welcome to join in on store-to-store trick-or-treating. All children must be accompanied by an adult and participating stores will be designated by an orange balloon.
The Guest Services Center will additionally have a small toy or other non-food alternative available in support of the Teal Pumpkin Project, a national campaign to promote the inclusion of all trick-or-treaters, including those with food allergies.
Separately, Maui Friends of the Library will offer one complimentary children’s book per child 12 years or under at its Queen Kaʻahumanu Center location. All candy, non-food treats and books are available while supplies last.
“Halloween is one of our biggest events of the year. We are delighted to welcome the community to our family friendly festivities”, says Toni Rojas, Director of Marketing. “With generous sponsorship by HMSA, we have added great entertainment including a keiki parade and costume contest with great prizes, face painting, balloon art, and strolling magic”, said Rojas.
Following Halloween, Queen Kaʻahumanu Center will host a candy buyback program at its Guest Services Center Nov. 1 through 5. Children are invited to sell their unopened Halloween candy (no chocolate) to Queen Ka’ahumanu Center at $1 per pound, up to 5 pounds, while supplies last.
Queen Kaʻahumanu Center will then donate the purchased candy to Operation Gratitude, which includes the treats in care packages sent to US service members, veterans and first responders.
