Oahu Mystery Tour

Why are Hawaiian ghosts different from other ghosts? Well, for starters, they play a much bigger role in Polynesian culture than your run-of-the-mill poltergeist.

Mysteries of Hawaii not only showcases local hauntings and creepy legends, but also expose you to some of the ceremonial events that Hawaiians use to interact with the supernatural. It’s a truly different approach to the notion of Halloween; it’s perhaps more educational than truly frightening.

Check out all the hauntings in Hawaii, whether it's along Waikiki Beach or in Honolulu, this native Hawaiian-owned ghost tour company has all bases covered with master storyteller, Lopaka Kapanui.

Pumpkin Picking

Pick your pumpkins from a pre-cut patch, feed animals at the animal farm, take a cow train ride, play in the Lil' Rascal Zone, or launch a pumpkin from the Pumpkin Cannon to get into a festive fall spirit. Located north and east of Honolulu, this farm is easy to reach with a car rental or even moped ride. Getting In: Admission to the Waimanalo Farms Pumpkin Patch is free; pumpkins and activities priced separately.

Waimanalo Country Farms' Fall Harvest Festival gives you the chance to pick your pumpkins from a pre-cut patch. Enjoy the fresh air as you persue the perfect pumpkin and stroll through the sunflower fields. There's also a country market and food stand where you can purchase fresh produce, farm honey and handmade gifts.

With plenty of other activities to get stuck into, such as a tractor hayride, animal visit and the kid's activity zone, this is the perfect Halloween. Meet the animals in a feeding
