Halloween Still a Hit

This year, Molokai families still found fun ways to celebrate Halloween with social distancing measures. Businesses opened for drive-by trick or treating, small groups of friends gathered for trunk-or-treating out of their car trucks, a virtual costume contest drew nearly 100 entrants and many other creative alternatives.
Molokai’s first ever virtual Halloween costume contest was hosted by the Adolpho ohana and Rep. Lynn DeCoite, garnering 95 participants in a variety of categories. Special guest judges including Molokai’s High Watah, Keala Alcon and Raiatea Helm chose their favorites, along with celebrities from farther afield like Ronda Rousey and Travis Browne, Kamaka Pili and Jake Shimabukuro. Pictured here is Brynlee, who won in the creative category, and pirates ‘Eha, Lala and Keku.
