Halloween Costume Contest
Community sponsor FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention presents the 28th annual Utah Symphony’s costume contest! This year is different than any other, and has evolved to include our online audiences who decide upon the winners from a pool of finalists. Costumed ticket holders to both performances of “Ghostbusters” may enter the annual contest in the lobby of Abravanel Hall starting at 5:30 pm. Costume contest will end promptly at 6:45 pm – no exceptions.

Finalists’ photos will be uploaded to Facebook and winners will be voted upon by our loyal online fans in the categories adult, child and group. Prizes include passes to FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention, Natural History Museum of Utah, Ballet West, Utah Symphony | Utah Opera, Centerpoint Legacy Theater, Ogden Dinosaur Park, The Hogle Zoo, Grimm Ghost Tours, The Leonardo, Living Planet Aquarium and gift cards courtesy of KSL NewsRadio.

**Please be courteous to your fellow concert goers: costumes that includes extra height or large pieces need to be set aside before the concert begins in order to not impede sight lines or other attendees’ experiences.



After the members of a team of scientists lose their cushy positions at Columbia University, they decide to become “ghostbusters” to wage a high-tech battle with the supernatural and stumble upon a gateway to another dimension—a doorway that releases evil upon the city. The Ghostbusters are now New York’s only hope to save it from complete destruction. Join the Utah Symphony as they perform Elmer Bernstein’s iconic score live while you watch the full-length feature film of Ghostbusters on the big screen.
