Sure you could show up at the party dressed as the president or Honey Boo-Boo. How about a twist this year, why not show up as one of Utica's famous people, places or landmarks? Here are some suggestions.

    Leon Etienne and Romy Low

    Utica's favorite illusionists, Leon Etienne and Romy Low made it to the big time this year after appearing on NBC's America's Got Talent and will be a hit at any Halloween party this year. Just be prepared to do a magic trick for the guests.

    A Chicken Riggie

    You could dress like Utica's signature dish. Make a costume to look like a chicken riggie and watch everyone at the party want to eat you up.

    Mayor Robert Palmieri

    Command some respect at the gathering by presenting yourself as "Mr. Mayor". Perhaps a shovel in hand will help you clean up the town as well.

    A Utica Comet

    The Utica Comets is the area's new pro hockey team. Dress like a comet or their mascot, the Green Man.

    The Utica Tower

    The Utica Sign has everyone taking a look as they travel down I-90 or Route 49. If you can imitate this look, you'll glow this Halloween.
