Alyeska Resort offers spooky, festive fun for Halloween weekend
September 16, 2013 (Girdwood, Alaska) –Halloween festivities represent the last “hurrah” before the resort prepares for the biggest event of all winter: opening day of the 2013/14 ski season. This year, the resort is hosting the Alyeska Halloween Train in partnership with the Alaska Railroad on Saturday, November 2, plus a zombie disco in the Alyeska Daylodge on Friday and Saturday, November 1 and 2.
Make your weekend a spooktacular extravaganza with a ride on the Alyeska Halloween Train. The party begins aboard the Alaska Railroad as you travel between Anchorage and Girdwood in style, arriving to a buffet dinner at the Hotel Alyeska and continuing on to the zombie disco at the Daylodge. It goes without saying that costumes are encouraged! The Alyeska Halloween Train is scheduled for a mid-afternoon departure from Anchorage to the Hotel Alyeska on Sunday, November 2; the package is for guests ages 21 and over and includes one-night stay, rail travel to Girdwood, buffet dinner, two drink vouchers, tickets to the Halloween Concert at the Daylodge, and return coach bus to Anchorage on Sunday, November 3.

The late-night entertainment is scheduled for the Alyeska Daylodge where the resort is hosting its popular Halloween Concert. This year’s show features Fly Guy on Friday, November 1 and The Funky Hippeez on Saturday, November 2.
Los Angeles-based Funky Hippeez will return to the Daylodge stage after a successful Halloween concert in 2012. Billed as ‘the world’s grooviest live disco and funk show’ complete with elaborate costumes and antics reminiscent of the late 70’s disco era, the band will pump out classic 70’s and 80’s disco hits with flair, soul and charisma. Companion act Fly Guy will perform a blend of 1980’s and 90’s new wave and pop hits on Friday evening at the Daylodge.
Both concerts are scheduled from 9:00 PM to 1:00 AM. The ticket price is $10 per person and guests must be 21 years of age or older. Advanced tickets are available by calling the Alyeska Ticket Office at 907-754-2275, or online at www.AlyeskaResort.com.
