The Headless Horseman Rides Through Sunday

The Headless Horseman has extended his stay at Conner Prairie Interactive History Park in Fishers (map). Instead of riding off on Saturday (27 October), he'll make more appearances on Sunday (28 October).

Gates will be open from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday through Sunday (25-28 October). Nightly thrills include a haunted hayride, pumpkin bowling, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow marionette show, catapulting pumpkins, scary-o-ke singing, nightly showings of Disney’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” film and a carnival games midway.
Hayride times are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Special programs this week include:

*Ghost Hunters (7, 8 and 9 p.m. Friday)
Find out just what it takes to be a successful ghost hunter and hear from Indiana Scientific Paranormal Investigators and Quest Paranormal Research as they share their techniques and tales of the job.

*Insects as Food (7, 8 and 9 p.m. Saturday)
Purdue University’s Department of Entomology and the Thomas Say Society will present a journey through the global uses of insects, focusing on their role as food for many cultures. They will be cooking up some recipes – try a taste!

Thursday and Sunday tickets are at the gate; Friday and Saturday tickets are $15 at the gate.
