Kahului, Maui, HI – October 9, 2017 – Queen Ka’ahumanu Center announces their annual Halloween celebration, Let’s Trick or Treat Together!, set for Tuesday, October 31, 2017 from 5 – 7pm.

QKC will welcome store-to-store trick-or-treating by those 12 years of age and younger. Participating stores will be designated with an orange balloon, and the mall’s Guest Services Center adjacent to center court will offer a small toy or other non-food alternative in support of the Teal Pumpkin Project, a national campaign to promote the inclusion of all trick-or-treaters, including those with food allergies. Separately, Maui Friends of the Library will offer one free children’s book per child for those who trick-or-treat at its Queen Ka‘ahumanu Center location.  All giveaways are while supplies last.  No masks may be worn by those 13 years of age and older.

The Center Court will feature Halloween entertainment including a keiki costume contest with prizes, keiki costume parade, face painting, magic and special meet and greet with princesses and super heroes. There will be door prizes and a chance to win the QKC Family Fun Night Grand Prize for 4, including a limousine ride by TPT Transportation, QKC Dinner for 4 and Fun Factory Family Pack.

In support of hunger relief on Maui, QKC and Travel Plaza Transportation have collaborated to bring the annual Halloween “Stuff the Bus” Maui Food Bank Drive, a kickoff to the neediest time of year.  All adults are encouraged to bring a minimum of 1 donation item per person to support feeding those in need with a goal of 5,000 pounds of food.  The most needed items are canned meat and tuna, canned fruits and vegetables, canned meals and soups with protein, along with cereal, rice and pasta.  Items can be dropped off at Center Court.

New this year will be Keiki Halloween Town, designed by The Keiki Playhouse, from 10am to 8pm in the south wing, adjacent to Center Court.  Entry is $5 per adult/child, no charge for children 2 years and under.  The experience will feature a keiki-friendly haunted house and sensory play, along with arts and crafts.

“We are so excited to celebrate this annual tradition at QKC with even more enhanced family-fun experiences”, says Toni Rojas, Marketing Director. “Every year, with the generous support of community partners like HMSA, Maui Friends of the Library, The Keiki Playhouse, Travel Plaza Transportation and Fun Factory, we bring new elements to this celebration. And now as we enter the holiday season, together we can kick off holiday giving to our own community by donating to the Maui Food Bank!”, says Rojas.

Let’s Trick or Treat Together! is presented by QKC and HMSA, with support from Maui Friends of the Library, The Keiki Playhouse, Travel Plaza Transportation and Fun Factory.
