4. WAIKIKI STRIP

If you’re on a budget and still want to have fun on Halloween, we highly recommend driving to Waikiki and walk the streets with everyone! Put on your best costume, bring your camera and stroll Kalakaua Avenue in Waikiki for an exciting evening. We’ve done this last year and it’s extremely fun seeing everyone in very unique costumes! It’s a great way to experience Waikiki strip in a whole new level. The Waikiki strip in Hawaii is known for its outrageous Halloween costumes and parties. You won’t be disappointed if you come down with friends and have some fun!

Where? Kalakaua Avenue, Honolulu, HI 96815 | The whole Waikiki strip!

When? October 31, 2015 | We usually get to Waikiki around 9pm or 10pm

How Much? Free to roam around Waikiki. Parking around town varies, you can park at the Honolulu zoo, street parking, parking structures, or hotel parking. ($1 per hour at the zoo is the cheapest parking we know!)

5. TRICK OR TREAT

NEIGHBORHOOD TRICK-OR-TREATING

If you don’t want to experience the hustle and bustle of a busy Waikiki on Halloween, driving or walking to a decent neighborhood can bring just as much fun excitement as going to town and would be more suitable for children. Many great neighborhoods we have visited in the past are Mililani, Kaneohe/Kailua, Hawaii Kai, Kapolei, and Ewa Beach. Choose to drive around and visit more than one area! To be quite frank, the more wealthy neighborhoods provide the best treats and are the safest for families!

Where? Around your friendly neighborhood

When? October 31, 2015 (Saturday), from sunset to as late as you want (or until your neighbor runs out of sweets!)

How Much? FREE! FREE! FREE!

If walking around an unfamiliar neighborhood is still out of the picture, trick or treating at the mall is the most safe alternate for families. Great for those who prefer being indoors. We’ve also done the mall (Windward Mall) route which is perfect for those rainy nights. Mall employees stand outside of their stores and pass out candies to children walking around. Throughout the mall, Trick or treating at participating stores’ have “treat stations” for children under 12 who are dressed in costume. Keiki (kids) dressed in their favorite costumes can Trick or Treat throughout the Center.

Tip: be there early! Lines build up quickly at the mall but it’s enjoyable because one is able to see many awesome costumes!
