Lahaina Gateway to host ‘Pineapples and Pumpkins’ Celebration
LAHAINA — Visit Lahaina Gateway for its “Pineapples and Pumpkins” celebration during Halloween weekend.
On Saturday, Oct. 30, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., join Hali’imaile Pineapple Company for free Maui Gold pineapple samples, demonstrations, pineapple recipes, pumpkin treats, special sales at participating stores and entertainment.
Michael Kollwitz, with his Solo 12-string Chapman Stick, will perform jazz and blues with a Hawaiian flair from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Enter to win fresh pineapples and prizes during the event at the seating area by Foodland Farms.
From 4 to 7 p.m., keiki 12 and under can go trick-or-treating at stores and restaurants throughout the center.
Also for children 12 and under, the Keiki Costume Contest begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Hula Girl Fountain. There will be ten total prizes for the best pineapple and best pumpkin-themed costume, plus most frightening, most original and best Halloween baby costume (under two years old).
King Kamehameha III Elementary School’s keiki fall decoration winning entries will be on display again this year. Instead of donating pumpkins this year, Lahaina Gateway brought them cases of freshly harvested Maui Gold pineapples from Hali’imaile Pineapple Company.
These creatively decorated Halloween pineapples will be on display at the stores for everyone to enjoy beginning Oct. 30.
Bring the family and enjoy great shopping and dining at Lahaina Gateway. For information, call Patti Link at 661-3311.
