Get ready for tricks and treats at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion’s Hocus Pocus Pops featuring the Houston Symphony.
*Please note: There will be no showing of the film Hocus Pocus at this event.
Follow along with the Houston Symphony in a mesmerizing performance of horrifying horns, bewitching bassoons and chilling cellos. Everyone is gravely 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 the chance to march in the Goblin Parade. Wristbands are required to participate in the Goblin Parade.
Haunting the plazas before dusk are pre-concert activities starting when the gates open at 6 p.m. Enchanted events to win spooktacular prizes at BOOths offered by H-E-B, The Pavilion Partners, Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands and others. 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. Feel free to pack a picnic to sink your fangs into, but keep in mind that outside potions (drinks) cannot be brought into The Pavilion. Sitting on the hill? Lawn chairs also are provided free for this event!
