Kula church to host Halloween event
Waipuna Chapel in Kula is sponsoring an event that organizers call a "safe way to celebrate Halloween" from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
The price of admission is canned food for donation to the Maui Food Bank.
"Instead of kids going 'trick or treating' from house to house, kids go 'trunk to trunk' in the Waipuna Chapel parking lot," the church's announcement says.
The event will include free food, Halloween-themed games, a glow-in-the-dark tent, candy and prizes.
The chapel is on the corner of Kula Highway and Omaopio Road. For more information, go to www.waipunachapel.com.
