Costumed characters

From keiki to kupuna, Kauai celebrated Halloween last week, an event that evolved from the Celtic holiday of Samhain.

The Celts, so it is said, used the date to transition from the end of the harvest season and the start of winter, the transition of seasons becoming a bridge to the world of the dead.

From the North Shore to the Westside, costumed characters emerged to share in the merriment of the day.

With candies and sweets overflowing from trick-or-treat bags, the ghosts, ghouls and monsters traversed through the night.
