The County of Maui released a schedule of fun activities and transportation options for anyone planning on attending the annual Halloween in Lahaina 2012 event.

“These are the sorts of events that we want on Maui, good for our small town businesses and communities,” said Mayor Alan Arakawa.

“Because of Halloween on Front Street last year our shops, hotels, restaurants and bars made money, our local families had fun and many of our visitors booked return trips to come back for October 31st again this year.

“We are hoping for another fun and safe event for everyone this year,” Mayor Arakawa said.

There will be two costume contests this year – one for the kids and one for adults.  The 34th Annual Keiki Costume Parade is sponsored by the Soroptimists of West Maui, the Rotary Club of Lahaina, and Lahaina Sunrise Rotary.  The adult costume contest is sponsored by Honu Seafood & Pizza and Mala Ocean Tavern.

There will be music at the Banyan Tree Park with DJ Ron and live music at Campbell Park provided by the Whiskey Pimps.  Both venues are being sponsored by Fleetwoods on Front Street.

The County of Maui and the Lahaina Town Action Committee are working together to organize this 2012 Halloween event.

Transportation options include shuttles to and from Front Street from Central and South Maui.  The Central Maui pickup will be at the War Memorial Football Stadium Parking Lot; and the South Maui shuttles will depart from the Kalama Park Pavilion Parking Lot near the Foodland intersection.

Tickets for the Halloween Express Shuttle cost $3 each way, and must be purchased in advance.  All ticket sales are on a first come first serve basis, with limited seating available.  Tickets cannot be purchased at the bus pickup point.

Shuttle tickets went on sale Wednesday, October 17 and are set to close by 6 p.m. on October 30.

Tickets can be purchased at the following locations:

The Kahului Shell Station Super Stop at 370 Dairy Road

Kihei Shell Station at Blackie’s Pit Stop at 30 Mana’o Kala Street

Lahaina Visitor Center (return tickets only)

The Old Lahaina Courthouse at Banyan Tree Park

In addition to the Halloween Express Shuttle schedule, the county will also extend its Maui Bus Schedule. For the Maui Bus routes, no reservations are required, and the cost is the normal rate of $2 each way, or $4 for an unlimited day pass.

Special note:  Front Street will be closed to vehicular traffic from 3:30pm to midnight, Wednesday, October 31, 2012.
