It’s Halloween on Molokai, which means lots of fun for keiki and adults alike.

On Friday, Hotel Molokai held its annual Halloween costume contest. Prizes were awarded for scariest, funniest, most original and most Hawaiian costumes. Music from Mobettah, “da band,” was featured.

Over the weekend, a Molokai Youth Center Halloween Haunted House was open free to the public Friday evening. On Saturday was a Halloween Bash sponsored by Kahale Mua and Onipa’s Tenant Association at the Maunaloa Recreation Center.

Today, Halloween, the Molokai Lions Club holds its annual costume contest on the Molokai Public Library lawn. Registration is from 4-4:45 p.m. with prizes awarded at 5 p.m. for cutest, scariest and most original.

Every Halloween, the Kaunakakai Baptist Church offers a Christian Halloween alternative called the HallowHim Festival. This takes place at the church from 5:30-8 p.m. and is free for all ages. Games, candy, stew, entertainment and many fun activities will be offered. Christian vocal artists Total Praise will perform.

And, of course, each school has its own celebrations. At Maunaloa Elementary School, students in K-6 could be seen marching around the campus today. Click here to see a video of the Halloween parade.
