What To Do

The Legend Behind the 'Legend'


Oct 23, 2013 to Oct 27, 2013
10:30 AM until 03:30 PM

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).


During October, Washington Irving's Sunnyside in Tarrytown celebrates its connection to Washington Irving's classic tale, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
A daytime visit here is the perfect prelude to an evening at Blaze, Horseman’s Hollow, or Irving’s ‘Legend.’ Irving’s fascinating home – a colorful blend of architectural styles – will showcase numerous objects related to Irving’s famous story. Visitors on Saturday and Sunday can enjoy a shadow puppet performance of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and experience one of Irving's spooky tales on a walk through the woods. For children, there are craft projects and the opportunity to pose with one of the giant "Legend'' cut-outs for a photo-op.
For tickets, go to www.hudsonvalley.org or call 914-366-6900.


12 for adults, $10 for seniors, $6 for children 3-17, under 3 attend free
