Houston Symphony: Hocus Pocus 

Enjoy a concert from the Houston Symphony at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. Mezzanine and Lawn seats are free.

Lucus Waldin conducts the Houston Symphony in a mesmerizing performance of horrifying horns, bewitching bassoons and chilling cellos. Everyone is encouraged to dress up in their Halloween costume for a chance to walk on stage during the concert. The first 100 boys and "ghouls" to check in at Hocus Pocus Central in the North Plaza, fully costumed, get to march in the Goblin Parade. 

Haunting the plazas before dusk are pre-concert activities starting when the gates open at 6 p.m.  If you dare, hop onto the Great Pumpkin Express and carve out some great (or gruesome) memories on The Pavilion's haunted grounds. Train rides begin at 5:30 p.m. in The Pavilion's Gold Lot.
