Last year on Halloween, My Rare One and I were in the town of Lahaina on the west coast of Maui. Every October 31st, Lahaina throws a huge Halloween party. The town's main drag, Front Street, is closed to traffic and opened to costumed revellers. Once school is out at 4:00 p.m., the Keiki (Kids) Halloween Parade begins. Here are some of my photos -- I hope you enjoy them!
What's a parade without a marching band? Nice banana, dude, but those drummers are a real Scream!
Here's the whole M & M family -- yum!
What a cute little blue fairy! But what the hell is her Mom wearing on her feet?
Who you gonna call? Jeez, the entire cast of Ghostbusters showed up.
Remember these two crazy aliens from Sesame Street? A ringing telephone would terrify them, if I recall correctly.
Some local witches and a small Count Dracula . . .
. . . and several bees with their beekeepers following close behind.
At night, Front Street turns into one huge adult street party. Lahaina swells to about 20-30,000 people for that big costume bash. But the Keiki Parade wore us out so we didn't stay longer, but drove back to our condo in Kihei instead. Gettin' old, eh?
