A Happening Halloween
By Jack Kiyonaga, Editor
Molokai took to the streets last Tuesday to celebrate Halloween. One well-attended event was HallowHim, which was held for the first time at the Molokai Community Health Center and offered games, music and hotdogs for those attending.
“It’s a safe place where people can bring their families,” explained Pastor Randy Manley of the Molokai Baptist Church, one of the organizers of the night. “It’s special to see the community in one place, to see all the kids and the smiles.”
Ranch Camp was the most popular neighborhood for trick-or-treating with an endless stream of costumed keiki and parents winding their way from house to house. Popular costumes included Barbie and Ken, cowboy characters from the TV show Yellowstone, and requisite monster, demon types.
An anglerfish made an appearance as well. Hidden in her homemade deep-water fish costume, the anonymous anglerfish explained that while it took three days to make the costume, it was worth it just “to watch the little kids run.”
