Halloween 2023

Halloween is on a Tuesday this year so we will all need to plan ahead to juggle leaving work and getting the kids early enough to get some trick-or-treating in before bed time.


Need to brainstorm a creative costume. Try this little game:

Budget a little tight this year? Consider a costume swap with a group of friends. Got the idea from Kapolei Elementary School PTO who held a costume swap at their school fun fair last month.


So many different angles to think about. Costume safety, pedestrian safety, preparing your home for trick-or-treaters, dental health, inspecting the collection. Here are some tips from the experts.
