MEO joins superheroes and goblins at Halloween Drive-Thru

November 1, 2021
Maui Economic Opportunity joined the Maui County Drive-Thru Adventure on Halloween afternoon/evening at Keopuolani Park.

MEO’s group of ’60s Hippiesters, donning tie-dye bandanas and shirts, vests and peace signs, handed out more than 1,000 bags of gummies and colorful Band Aids in Halloween festive bags prepared by the nonprofit agency. Event organizers supplemented the supply of goodies as cars lined up on Kahului Beach Road along Kahului Harbor to turn right onto Wahinepio Avenue to access the park.

Some drivers said the wait was about an hour. The MEO team gave out goodies from 4:30 to 8 p.m., joining other nonprofit and school groups and local government leaders.

Most drive-thru participants were in their Halloween best from frightful goblins to superheroes with Spider-Man as a favorite. Minecraft characters, Grogu (Baby Yoda), the Mandalorian, princesses and the Grim Reaper were among those riding and roaming the park.

The MEO Hippiesters included Debbie and Mel Lorenzo, Gay and Lee Sibonga, Debbie and Raymond Cabebe and Lee and Debra Imada.
