This morning we will depart to the Historic Hudson Valley to begin our Spooktacular weekend beginning with a guided Knickerbocker tour of the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. Here we will trace the footsteps of Washington Irving’s most famous character Ichabod Crane in “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” as we walk to the author’s final resting place. Learn more about the talented Mr. Irving and his influence on popular culture today. We will also enter the cemetery’s 114 year old receiving vault, stop at a Revolutionary War monument, and admire the cemetery’s art and architecture during this walking tour. After lunch on your own, we’re off to Sunnyside to tour the home of Washington Irving, author of The Headless Horseman. We’ll then check into the Westchester Marriott Hotel in Tarrytown. Dinner will be at a local restaurant. Following an early dinner, we’ll depart for The Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow, the very church from the legend!  Master storyteller Jonathan Kruk recounts The Legend of Sleepy Hollow accompanied by live, spooky organ music. Then we’ll walk through The Blaze at Van Cortlandt Manor*. This event features more than 4,000 individually hand-carved, illuminated pumpkins!  Meander through a riverside landscape and discover a display of snakes, a giant spider web, an undersea aquarium, super-sized dinosaurs, even a colossal Stonehenge all made of pumpkins.  D
