October 11, 2011 (Girdwood, Alaska) – As fall foliage gives way to a layer of crisp frost and cooler temperatures, Alyeska Resort is on the hunt for Halloween festivities for all ages. All Hallow’s Eve represents the last “hurrah” before the resort prepares for the biggest event of all winter: opening day of the 2011/12 ski season. This year, the resort offers the Kid’s Carnival on Friday, October 28, as well as two adult-focused events on Saturday, October 29 including the Alyeska Mystery Train in partnership with the Alaska Railroad and Halloween Concert in the Alyeska Daylodge.
The Halloween Kids Carnival, presented by Girdwood School, offers a safe and warm environment for all ages to dress up and mingle. The carnival is scheduled from 4:30 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. in the Alyeska Daylodge on Friday, October 28. Admission to the event is $3 per person or $10 for families (immediate members only). Kids’ activities and booths will be set-up including face painting, creepy games, and fortune tellers. The night closes with a costume parade and contest. Proceeds from the event will benefit Girdwood School programs. The carnival is sponsored by The Ice Cream Shop and Girdwood PTA.
For “grown up” kids, the resort is presenting two events on Saturday, October 29. The third annual Alyeska Mystery Train is scheduled for a mid-afternoon departure from Anchorage to the haunted Hotel Alyeska. This special event train features live theatre-style murder mystery, multi-course dinner at The Hotel Alyeska and one-way train ride from Anchorage to Girdwood with return by coach bus the next day. The package is for guests ages 21 and over and includes one-night stay, round-trip transportation, entertainment, dinner, tickets to the Halloween Concert, complete with a “whodunit?” finale. The package price is $265 per person based on double occupancy and available through the Alaska Railroad Reservations Department at 907-265-2494 or 800-544-0552 or online at www.alaskarailroad.com.
The late-night entertainment is scheduled for the Alyeska Daylodge where the resort is hosting its popular Halloween Concert. This year’s show features two local power bands: A.T.F. and Static Cycle. The Alaska Thunderfunk will pump out hip hop indie rock sounds opening the show and warming up the crowd for rhythmic power alt-rock trio Static Cycle (www.staticcycle.com). Static Cycle has been on the indie music scene in Southcentral Alaska since 2007. The trio has rocked everything from local clubs to the Egan Convention Center. More recently, the band has reached beyond state borders with national acclaim touring in over a dozen states and sharing stages with major artists like Daughtry, Drowning Pool, Seether, Puddle of Mudd, Eve6, Emery and 36 Crazyfists. The band includes members: Jared Navarre (vocals, guitar), Josh Witham (lead guitar) and Dennis Smith (drums). Their debut single “Inside This World Of Mine,” is part of the new release EP, Part 1: Hydrate.
Costumes are encouraged and Huycke Entertainment will be hosting a contest with great prizes awarded for the best costumes of the night. The Halloween Concert is 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 AlyeskaResort.com.
