NEW YORK - October 3, 2011 - Syfy will celebrate Halloween with its fourth annual 31 Days of Halloween fright fest showcasing more than 600 hours of holiday- themed programming, running October 1-October 31.

As always, the centerpiece of the month-long spook-a-thon will be Ghost Hunters Halloween Live on Monday, October 31 from 7PM-1AM/ET. This year, Jason, Grant and team members from both Ghost Hunters and Ghost Hunters International will head to Pennhurst Asylum in Pennsylvania, a sprawling maze of buildings constituting a former state mental institution. Abandoned for decades, Pennhurst is now one of the country's most notoriously haunted locales.

Dodge will sponsor 31 Days of Halloween with a fully integrated partnership featuring the 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan as the official vehicle. Once again, Hershey will be the participating sponsor with a continuous presence throughout October.

As an expansion of 31 Days of Halloween, Syfy will imagine a greater Halloween by sponsoring New York City's holiday celebrations through a multi-media, on-the-ground partnership, 31 Days of HalloweeNYC, with NYC & Company, the city's official marketing, tourism and partnership organization.
