West Harrison, NY (PRWEB) October 12, 2008
Philipsburg Manor is bringing The Legend of Sleepy Hollow to life this year with Legend Weekend Days and Nights. Taking place the weekends of October 18 and 19, as well as October 25 and 26, 2008, Philipsburg Manor will be transformed by lit candle lanterns and bonfires as the classic tale takes center stage within the historic manor estate in Sleepy Hollow, NY. The Renaissance Westchester Hotel, located within the Hudson Valley, is minutes away from the festivities and offers Sleepy Hollow guests luxurious autumn accommodations to help them sleep soundly after a frightful outdoor adventure.
Enjoy a rustic October celebration with pumpkin carving, spooky storytelling, open-hearth cooking, and colonial games during Legend Weekend Days. Visit the water-powered gristmill, 18th-century barn, and newly restored manor house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. by day, then make reservations and prepare to be haunted during Legend Weekend Nights that begin at 6 p.m. each evening.
Wander through a haunted landscape filled with goblins and ghosts from Hudson Valley folklore. New this year, creepy and creative large-scale puppets inspired by Superior Concept Monsters, the same folks who bedazzle crowds at NYC's Greenwich Village Halloween parade, will fright and excite with spook-tacular creations.
Then wander back to the Renaissance Westchester Hotel and discover luxurious White Plains accommodations. From pillow top mattresses and down duvet comforters, to plush Euro pillows, each newly renovated hotel room and suite artfully balances style and functionality. So sleep soundly and wake up refreshed at this fright-free hotel in White Plains, New York.
