Halloween in Hawaii

Ready for a little chicken skin? That would be goosebumps to some of you, and you can experience them at any of three Outrigger properties in Hawaii during the last week of October.

“Spooky Tales,” the hotelier’s award-winning annual event features ghost stories and other hair-raising tales presented by master island storytellers. Sponsored in part by Bess Press, publishers of the Spooky Tales books, the event will take place on Friday, October 27, at the Outrigger Keauhou Beach Resort on Hawaii’s Big Island; Monday, October 30, at the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach; and Tuesday, October 31, at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach. Admission is free.

Featured storytellers at the two Oahu properties include Woody Fern, who has been acknowledged as one of Hawaii’s most accomplished storytellers. His specialties include tales of Hawaiian ali`i (royalty), local legends, and stories passed down through families. Noted Hawaiian educator and cultural authority Keala Ching will share tales of Pele goddess of the volcano,  and of the Keauhou area at the property on the Big Island.

Spooky Tales is part of the Kalakaua Experience, a year-round series of educational guest programs about Hawaii’s rich cultural heritage, both contemporary and traditional, held at the three properties. Programs include special events and workshops covering a broad range of topics such as Hawaiian history, music and dance, healing, ocean voyaging, warrior arts, crafts and fine artwork, island cuisine, the environment, lei-making and more. Many of the programs feature hands-on learning, and are free to registered guests of the hotels.

About the author

As The Genre Traveler, Carma Spence loves to view the world through Genre-Coloured glasses. In other words, she sees the world through a lens of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, where trash cans can be Daleks in disguise and neighborhood forests can harbor faeries and sprites. Magic realism is real! Or at least you can choose to see the world that way to add to the fun and awe of life.
