Halloween Fun Guide seeks spooky submissions


    Halloween revelers celebrate in Waikiki last year.

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 the Star-Advertiser’s annual Halloween Fun Guide coming out Oct. 8.

To submit a free listing, email details about your event — date, time, location, sponsor, description of event, cost, age recommendation and contact information — to by Oct. 3.


Spin your most haunting tale of horror and the supernatural in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s annual Halloween Fiction Contest.

Entries are limited to 650 words and must be original, unpublished work. The winner will receive a $200 cash prize, and their story will appear in the Oct. 29 Currents section. Second prize is $100.

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.

By entering the contest, you are granting the Honolulu Star-Advertiser a royalty-free license to use your story in print and online.

Email entries to or mail to Halloween Fiction Contest, Honolulu Star-Advertiser, 500 Ala Moana Blvd., Suite 7-210, Honolulu, HI 96813.
