A Night in Sleepy Hollow

Presented by Bourbonnais Township Park District and Acting Out Theatre Co.

Centuries later stories continue of the Headless Horseman riding through Sleepy Hollow from those who have claimed to witness the ghoulish event! Can it be just their imagination or is the legend of the Headless Horseman really true?

Only you can discover the answer. We dare you to venture out into the dark of night into the Perry Farm Park woods and listen for the thundering hoof beats of the Horseman's stallion. The legend will be told! Witnesses will come forth! You just may see it for yourself!
