Crawl out of your coffin, break out the cobwebs and grab a cuppa witches’ brew — it’s time to get ready for Halloween.
If you’re planning some mischief for the month of October — haunted houses, devilish bar parties, trick-or-treat opportunities, costume contests, horror movies, vampire pageants, zombie conventions, pumpkin festivals or other scare tactics — list your event in our annual Halloween Fun Guide coming out Oct. 1.
To submit a free listing, email details about your event — date, time, location, sponsor, description of event, cost, age recommendation and contact information — to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sept. 26.
LOOKING FOR A TALE THAT’S UNFORGETTABLE

One entry per person. Entries must be received by Oct. 17.
The contest is open to Hawaii residents only; Oahu Publications Inc. contributors, employees and their immediate family members are not eligible. The judges’ decision is final.
