KAPAA — Butch Keahiolalo said everybody loves bacon so that became his costume Sunday during the second annual Halloween Bike Path Costume Ride on Ke Ala Hele Makala‘e from the Kapaa Neighborhood Center, northward.
“I know almost everybody who is riding,” said Joe Funk of Coconut Coasters who got atop his colorful cruiser to wala‘au with the costumed riders that included a skipper of an ahi boat, the Ahi SlaYah and its escorting shark. “Unfortunately, I gotta close the shop so I can’t ride with them.”
Tommy Noyes of the Kauai Path distributed the popular slap-wrist reflectors, and Carlos Juano and Janifer Alfred broke down and brought a bag of treats for the young riders.
“This is brought to the public by the Eastside United soccer club,” Keahiolalo said. “Eastside (they’re competitors with the Kalaheo Fire) has girl soccer players in the Under 10, Under 11, and Under 18 divisions. We just got through playing games, and now, we’re having fun.”
