The Pavilion welcomed Jason Seber back to the Main Stage to conduct the Houston Symphony in a mesmerizing performance featuring popular selections from Star Wars, Coco, The Witches of Eastwick, How to Train Your Dragon and more.


Everyone was encouraged to dress up in their Halloween costume for a chance to walk on stage during the concert. The first 100 boys and girls, fully costumed, had the opportunity to march in the Goblin Parade.

Pre-concert activities started at 6 p.m. and included making a spooky craft, photos with favorite Halloween characters, playing music at the Instrument Petting Zoo, pumpkin decorating courtesy of H-E-B and sponsor activations. Guests also could hop onto the Great Pumpkin Express and carve out some great memories.
