Halloween in Lahaina this year???

Aloha! Is there any word yet about Halloween in Lahaina this year? Are they going to block off Front Street? I haven't been able to find any definite info and was looking forward to bringing my husband to it this year.

Mahalo.

I don't believe any group has applied for a permit. It is not a profitable event for a sponser but it is great for the restaurants.

So it could go back to the way it was for many years.

Just a great childrens parade and lots of people walking around in costumes.

The year they did not close Front Street to traffic was a poor decision.

There wasn't room for the pedestrians on the side walks so of course they

walked on the street.

Bring your costumes.

The Mayor of Maui supports Halloween. Now they just need someone to

get the permit and pay all the bills for all the expenses.

The street will be closed for the Keiki parade.

For safety reasons the road should be kept closed to accomodate the pedestrians and keep them safe from vehicles. Just common logic.

The street is closed on July 4th.

What time and where is the Keiki parade? Is there info about that anywhere? I haven't been able to find it online yet. Thanks!

Aloha,

The plans aren't finalized yet. The keiki parade will probably start near the Hard Rock Cafe, at the north end of Front St., and go south to the Banyan Tree Park. It's usually around 4 PM.

I wouldn't bet on any other "adult" events except those that may be hosted by businesses inside..........the CRC ain't budging on their stance yet that the adult "party on Front St" was out of hand.

The Keiki parade will be celebrating it's 33rd year.

It is organized by Rotary and West Maui Soroptimists.

It usually starts around 3:30 from near Hard Rock.

I hope they can start it a little bit later so it is not as hot for

the kids in their costumes and then just leave the street

closed.

The shirts are all designed and since Mayor Arakawa was elected back into office, it is all systems go for the annual Halloween celebration. If you go online, you can see the 2012 T-shirt style and pull up images of the 2011 event. "Mardi Gras of the Pacific 2012." See you there! Aloha
