Join us on the lawn at 4pm for The Sleepy Hollow Halloween Show as Kit’s Interactive Theatre weaves the characters from Washington Irving’s classic story into a new and exciting tale. Designed to be spooky (but not scary), the show begins where the original story leaves off and combines storytelling, music, dance, audience participation and a great deal of humor.
