NEW YORK (AP) — The Empire State Building is dressing up for Halloween.

The landmark building’s lighting designer says Thursday night’s show will include “spooky” colors created with about 15,000 channels of LED lighting.

Marc Brickman tells WABC-TV the building plans a 9-minute program with a Halloween theme that also includes “a great mix of five songs.”

The colors will span from the 72nd floor all the way up to the antennae.

Brickman says the lights will be seen as far as away as Connecticut.

Fans in the tri-state area can tune into Z100 (100.3 FM) or KTU (103.5 FM) to hear the synchronized soundtrack in real-time during the light show.
