Our second annual All Hallows’ Eve celebration is just around the corner and we can’t wait to welcome back Storyteller Susan Fowler for another rendition of Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Join us on Saturday, October 19th, 2013 and Saturday, October 26th, 2013. This year, reservations are required for the event and can be made by calling 812-544-2434, or emailing us at elf@santaclausmuseum.org. Admission is $2 per person. Make your reservations ASAP, as seating is limited!

Between 4:30 pm CT – 6:30 pm CT, enjoy a variety of family-friendly activities, just in time for Halloween. Locate all our hidden pumpkins during our Sleepy Hollow Scavenger Hunt. Gather around the bonfire and listen to spooky, Indiana ghost stories. Paint a message on a gravestone and install it in our very own Sleepy Hollow Cemetery.  Sample some apple cider and yummy fall treats. Hot dog kits will be available for purchase, and can be roasted over an open fire as you listen to ghost stories. And you won’t want to miss out on our Headless Horseman Pony Rides, offered for $5 per person by Santa’s Stables.
