Hawaiian Spooky Tales Gives Locals The Chills

OAHU, HAWAII (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Local Hawaiians may normally hang loose, but this Halloween (Oct. 31) they’re more likely to be scared straight.

That’s because the third Annual “Spooky Tales” event is happening at various Outrigger Hotels all over the islands.

Event organizer Luanna Maitland expects a large turnout at the event due to the importance locals place on oral tradition and storytelling.

Says Maitland: “If you grew up in Hawaii, the spooky tales are stories you’ve heard a thousand times, passed down through families for years and they become truth.”

Maitland explains many of the traditional spooky tales involve ancient Hawaiian warriors whose ghostly footsteps can still be heard marching in the night. She adds, “The stories are so much fun – even though they are so spooky that you never forget them.”
