As probably one of West Palm's biggest events of the year, it'll even be pretty damn hard for Halloween to beat.

Fort Lauderdale's Polynesian-themed restaurant will be celebrating its sixth annual Hulaween in the Molokai bar this Friday.

Don't forget to look your best if you want to get "lei"-ed later that night.
