Aloun Farms Pumpkin Festival

Aloun Farms will be hosting its annual pumpkin picking festival to bring Halloween spirit to this popular tropical island. This family favorite event is the real deal: from a pick-your-own-pumpkin excursion to hayrides and farm-style food, drink, and games, you’ll feel like you stepped right into a New England pumpkin patch. There will be something for everyone to enjoy, including pony rides, photo booths, and seasonal games. The Pumpkin Festival is on for the final 3 weekend of October and tickets can be purchased at the door.

Oahu Ghost Tours

Waikiki Pickups Thursday & Saturday evenings, year-round 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. Oahu Ghost Tours not only showcase 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. This year, consider checking out the newest tour, Myths and Legends of Waikiki for some spooky fun peppered with Hawaiian history and legend. Getting In: Tickets for Oahu Ghost Tours are separately ticketed and are not included with the Go Oahu pass. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit the attraction website. Parents are encouraged to exercise judgment on whether the subject matter is appropriate for their kids.

Pumpkin Picking

Waimanalo Farms Dates TBD, October 2019 (Mon-Fri reserved for educational groups, Sat & Sun 9-5 pm) 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.

Haunted Plantation
