The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is a popular event that sells out ahead of time. So, We are posting the “Tickets On Sale Date” for our #PanoramaNOW Customers. (actual dates listed below)
Purchase your tickets at Deep River County Park from 5:30 – 7:30. The event takes place at Buckley Homestead in Lowell.
This is a guided interactive performance that transforms Buckley Homestead in to the Tarrytown, NY. This village is full of stories and superstitions. Keep your eye out for the Headless Horsemen!
For four magical nights, Buckley Homestead is transformed into Tarrytown, NY, a quiet, dreamy little village known to many as Sleepy Hollow. The village abounds with stories and superstitions, the most famous of which is of a Hessian soldier who lost his head in the war and rides each night in search of a new one. Perhaps you’ve heard of the Headless Horseman?
Visitors will walk with a guide through Sleepy Hollow as they meet and interact with the townsfolk in search of Ichabod Crane, the one person who can tell them all about the stories of this quaint village. You become part of the storybook scenes, but be careful! There’s no telling what may cross your path in the night besides the occasional black cat. It may be the Headless Horseman himself! This program is a great way to experience the excitement of classic literature come to life.
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is outdoors and requires walking a bark chip trail lit by luminaries. It has proven a challenge for those who have walking difficulties. Not recommended for those who have a hard time walking the uneven and hilly ground or for strollers. A short hayride is part of the program if trail conditions permit.
If hayrides are not available, you will walk the entire nearly one mile trail. Wheelchairs have made it around the trail if conditions are dry, Wheelchairs have to follow the hayride as there is no room on the hay wagon for the wheelchair. Visitors should dress for the weather.
Lanterns will light your way during the night program, but dress for the weather and be ready to walk. Remember; be prepared for the “unexpected”…
Presale tickets are $20 for adults and available online at www.lakecountyparks.com or call 219-769-7275.
