Halloween is an American idea. I will be surprised if many in Dar will even have heard of it.

They do have on in a bar in Arusha called Maasai Camp and one of the lodges do usually put something on. Cannot help you with Dar.

Maasai Camp celebrates Halloween on more nights then October 31st.

As Mufwe indicated, this is an American "holiday" and probably more then that originally a Christian children's celebration of All Saints Day. So, there may be a bar or two which uses this pitch to gather customers but it's not a common thing. Typically this would be around the time of year that many in Tanzania are honoring Ramadan which would be contrary to the traditions of Halloween.
