You’re never too old for a good scream or a cheap thrill. Here’s a quick list of some of Salt Lake’s ongoing Halloween and harvest events, to be referenced as little or often as you deem reasonable. We think the Ghost Tours look the most intriguing.
Ghost Tours: Get the scoop on haunted cemeteries and buildings with Salt Lake’s paranormal experts. Dates and times here, Ogden tours included.
Thriller: Odyssey Dance Theatre’s Halloween variety show is playing at Kingsbury Hall through Oct. 31. It’s a great blend of homespun props and professional dancing. But our favorite part is the signature living dead girls, ready to steal your seat … or your brain. Tickets and showtimes here.
Garden After Dark: Head to Red Butte Garden for “Magic in the Garden After Dark,” complete with magic shows, fire cauldrons and hot drinks. Sounds like a fun one for the kiddos. Here are the details.
Night of the Living Zoo: You get a whole spaghetti dinner and up-close-and-personal experiences with some of the zoo’s nocturnal animals. Sounds scary enough. More here.
Frightmares: Haunted amusement park? Yes, please (but only on weekends). Get more information here.
