Conner Prairie’s Headless Horseman

Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow

Conner Prairie – Headless Horseman 2009
I spent the last two weeks of October helping Conner Prairie with their annual fundraiser, Headless Horseman. It’s a haunted hayride through the dark, mysterious Prairietown. Trust me–walking around at night in the dark, historical home and barns is plenty scary, so be glad the visitors get to stay in a wagon! My most favorite part? The Headless Horseman, of course. At the end of the night when the volunteers walk back from their posts, it never fails that before you have time to hear the clunks of their hooves, the headless horseman sneaks up on you in the dark night. Creepiest. Thing. Ever. And I love it!

I took these photos during the event and have been meaning to post them. Enjoy!
