Halloween is definitely in the air in October and I think Oahu is one of the best places to celebrate.

There's a wide range of venues from haunted plantations to nightclubs and of course the always excellent people watching along Kalakaua Ave in Waikiki. The photo below shows Chinatown.

Specific event details are not out yet but check out the page I did from last year in order to get an idea. Most of these places will still have stuff going on but the theme will change.
