All rides begin and end at the campground adjacent to the Greene County Fairgrounds. Each day will feature and utilize a different section of the trail.

September

19 - 12 The Legend of Sleepy Hollow - "Many spirits haunt the Hollow...but what goes on Halloween night is a gathering of demons, and the Headless Horseman presides."

Sleepy Hollow is a place of infinite possibilities. It is a place where the local hero, Brom Bones, is in a constant battle with the local damsel, Katrina Van Tassel, for her hand in marriage; it is a place where balance is easily upset when an out-of-town school teacher named Ichabod Crane shows up; and it is a place haunted by something so sinister, that the locals only dare refer to it as "the collector." In this adaptation of Washington Irving's classic, serveral questions will be answered: who are the people of Sleepy Hollow, what does it mean to be afraid of the dark, and how does the Headless Horseman choose who is next?

Join the producers of BLUE JACKET in their second season production of THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW. Adapted for the stage by David Dortch. Thursday to Sunday at 8:00 pm.

Address: Caesars Ford Amphitheatre, 520 S. Stringtown Rd. , Xenia, Ohio
