Here are free and cheap events plus spooky things to do to celebrate Halloween all around the Hawaiian Islands.
Big Island Ghost Tours offers guided tours to some of Hawaii’s most supernatural and historical sites to experience a connection to ancient Hawaiʻi, the supernatural, and the afterlife. From places where missionaries brought disease, sites of human sacrifice, to modern sightings at resorts, parks, and museums built atop ancient burial grounds, many of the places visited on these tours offer history by day and are haunted by night. The Big Island in particular is well known for supernatural phenomenon including the Fire Goddess Madame Pele, Night Marchers, and sightings of the faceless ghost, many ancient Hawaiian legends are still very much entrenched in modern culture. Your guides include local authors and trained paranormal investigators who are familiar with Hawaii’s supernatural activity. Tours are offered every month of the year in Kona and Hilo, from $60pp and up.

Oct 3, 10, 17, 24, 222. Ticket: $40/person. Honolulu’s Haunted Crime Tour — Mysteries of Hawai’i Within the confines of the kapu of our ancestors, what was considered a heinous enough crime in ancient Hawai’i that would merit punishment by death? Could an Aliʻi have someone of an inferior rank suffer for an indiscretion in his/her place? How did the arrival of missionaries change the death penalty in Hawaiʻi? From the strict kapu which permeated the lives of our ancestors to the laws that carried out the penalties of the Fukunaga and the Massie trials, to a psychic who was murdered for knowing too much, this unique Honolulu ghost tour takes you around haunted sites in Downtown Honolulu, where the apparitions of the innocent are still seeking justice, while those of the corrupt may still be running from it.

Wed, Fri, Sun – Oct 5-30, 2022. Ticket: $40/person. Waikiki Night Marchers Ghost Tour — Mysteries of Hawai’i. Once being the seat of power of the Island of Oahu, the sands of Waikīkī contain much more than seashells and sand crabs. The oral traditions of the much-feared night marchers have survived countless years by being passed down from mouth to ear, and then by the learned art of writing and documentation. Tales of the Night Marchers have survived the influx of missionaries and many immigrant cultures. Their stories have spread through hushed storytelling around the dinner table. Their procession has been witnessed by Hawaiians and non-Hawaiians from different walks of life. However, the question always becomes, “Who are the Night Marchers?” On this Waikīkī ghost tour, you will learn about a place that was famous for ancient burials, heiau, battlefields, the homes of ali‘i, and several paths taken by the feared Night Marchers. On this 90-minute walking tour, hear the stories of those who have witnessed the march and have survived to tell the tale.
