(BroadwayWorld.com) Swashbucklers and superheroes have reason to celebrate Halloween in style this year with the Utah Symphony’s pair of entertainment concerts in the month of October. Tickets start at $12 for “Spooktacular on the Seven Seas!” and $21 for “Superheroes!” and can be purchased atwww.utahsymphony.org or by calling (801) 533-6683. (…) Media sponsor KSL NewsRadio and community sponsor Salt Lake Comic Con present the 26th annual costume contest, which will take place from 5:30 to 6:30 PM in the main lobby of Abravanel Hall. Families, groups, and individuals are invited to participate in the contest. This is the largest Halloween costume contest in the state, and it attracts elaborate, outrageous, and extraordinary costumes. Be sure to wear your zombie masks and witch hats for your chance to win amazing prizes! Utah Symphony musicians have also been known to get into the Halloween spirit, donning costumes of their own to play in for the duration of the concert.
Each costume contest category will have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes, including Salt Lake Comic Con FanX 2017 passes, Living Planet Aquarium passes, a Clark Planetarium family pass, and other prizes from The Leonardo, Natural History Museum of Utah, Utah’s Hogle Zoo, local restaurants, and other family-friendly attractions. No prior registration is necessary; however, the costume contest line will close at 6:30 PM sharp to allow patrons time to take their seats. The winners will be announced on stage immediately following intermission as determined by audience applause.
