When Halloween lands on a weekday, festivities on the night of may be pretty scarce. Hawaii usually celebrates Halloween the weekend before in Chinatown for the annual Hallowbaloo or at Windward Mall for the big Pumpkin Carving Fest.
I did some digging and found a few happenings on the night of Halloween (all on Oahu). There is actually a good mix of things to do for both children and adults that involve everything from candy to cocktails.
