Bad news, Halloween fans-- the coming Nor'Easter is messing up our plans for Saturday night. Tomorrow's (Friday, October 26th) event is still on as scheduled, but the second night of this year's Haunted Hayride (Saturday, October 27th) will be POSTPONED until Friday, November 2nd. If you bought tickets for this Saturday, October 27th, no sweat-- just bring them with you on either Friday night (October 26th or November 2nd) and they will be honored at the gate for a time slot as close to yours as possible. We are not able to offer refunds at this time, but we will accomodate you and your party on whichever Friday you'd prefer!
The weather for tomorrow (Friday the 26th, Night One) is still looking great-- we are looking at a dry, non-windy night with temperatures in the high 40s, which is just perfect for getting the living daylights scared out of you by our actors and volunteers (and maybe a Parks staff member or two). Of course there is also lots of fun for the little ones and those who do not want to be scared, so do not fear! There are still tickets available, just head to the Forest O' Fears website if you haven't bought your tickets yet and support this phenomenal community event.

The Town and Village were having some computer issues this week, so it's a good thing we had a lot to do outdoors!
Our Parks Department has been hard at work over at Cedar Lane Park preparing for the 2018 Forest O' Fears Haunted Hayride. In years past, the event has mainly consisted of a Halloween Village and the hayride trail itself, but this year, we are adding something I think you're really going to like-- the garage building near the Pavilion has been transformed into a two-story haunted house (and yes, I have done a walk through, it is super spooky in there.) However, the building hasn't been used for this purpose before, and has mostly served as one big storage locker for miscellaneous parks equipment, so it was no easy task to get it cleaned out and cleaned up. However, between the hard work of our staff and the Hayride volunteers, the building looks (almost) as good as new!
They even took the opportunity to clean up the back of the garage. WIthout a "Before" picture, it's hard to do this job justice, but trust me when I say, there was some stuff being stored back there and now, you'd never know it!

We heard your cries for a scarier ride...
Just cruising through the woods didn't fill your need? Maybe what's next will be more your speed.
A house so haunted we needed two whole floors, good luck finding your way out these doors!
A neighborhood butcher will "meat" you inside; he's great at his job, so don't try to hide.
And don't run from that lady, the one for the birds-- you may find some wisdom in some of her words.
The Confusion Room will make you crazy. Don't give up! Don't be lazy!
Stay quiet in the Morgue if you think you are able, please keep hands and feet away from that table.
Then once on the ride, there is no time to stop. At the end, an old friend, and things that go POP!
Tickets for the 2018 Hayride are on sale here-- prices are higher at the gate, so make sure you pre-purchase your tickets so that you can secure the ride time of your choice-- or we'll make you answer to these dudes.
Worried the Hayride may be a little scary for your gang? Not to worry. The Halloween Village will feature music by Ossining's own Strange Hours and DJ Johnny G, food by 6 Degrees of Separation (who will also be selling seasonal beer and yes, that includes pumpkin!), games like Mummy Flush, Chip's Pumpkin Fling and Franken-toss, and a fire show by Flaming Barrel of Monkeys Entertainment. The Ossining Athletic Booster Club and Gregory Perry Photography will be among the vendors on the field. Oh, and the "Unhaunted Hayride" and the Homespun Merry-Go-Round will thrill the littlest Halloween enthusiasts in your party. "Field access only" tickets will be available at the gate-- $10 per adult, $5 per child, and each ticket comes with 5 passes for games on the field.
