2013 Halloween Events on Kauai for Kids and Adults

It's that wonderful time of year again when we get to wake up to pumpkin spice lattes and friendly neighborhood decorating rivalries - some of the only ways you can really tell it's the 'Fall season' on Kauai. This time of year is a favorite for many Kauai residents, so don't worry about missing out on Halloween if you're vacationing on island - we celebrate it here.



Regardless of if you are a local resident looking for something new to do for Halloween, or if you're a visitor looking for a festive place to bring the kids, Kauai has many things to do on Halloween, and below we've listed some popular Halloween and Fall events that you can attend.

Kauai provides both visitors and residents with an unforgettable place to celebrate Halloween as it is so uniquely diverse, attracting a wonderful assortment of trick-or-treaters - both in costume and age.

Trick-or-Treating on Halloween


This year, the hardest part about celebrating Halloween on Kauai might just be deciding on where you want to be! If you do decide to go out and explore Kauai neighborhoods for trick-or-treating, we recommend you start walking around at sunset, while you still have a little light to acquire your surroundings (and ensure you get there before all the candy is gone). With so many Kauai Halloween events to choose from, how are you going to spend the best day of fall this year?

Happy Halloween!
