This is really cool!
The Headless Horseman must really like Sleepy Hollow.
This decoration is still on the top of the roof of this house. All the other Halloween decorations are gone. I keep expecting to pass the house on the way to the train station to find that he’s gone.
I don’t care, though. I think it’s great. As far as I’m concerned, they can leave the Headless Horseman up there all year.
Fall has finally arrived
Okay, the first pic is actually of an area along a highway not too far from the Hollow. I took this in the wee hours of the morning after I had done laundry. I was rewarding myself with breakfast out when I looked up before going into the diner and saw the beautiful trees on the hill opposite the highway. I took a picture. The peak leaf season is quickly approaching the area, if it hasn’t already arrived.
The Sleepy Hollow Village Hall on Beekman Avenue, decorated for Halloween
Things are moving along here in the Hollow as Halloween approaches. This weekend, the village is having a block party on Beekman, the main drag through town, to celebrate Halloween. It’s to accompany the hayride through a part of the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, but the “haunting” is taking place in Douglas Park. Supposedly, the hayride follows Icabod Crane’s ride past the Old Dutch Church and across the bridge and into the Hollow to escape the Headless Horseman. (Notice the mural of the Horseman in the high window in the village hall. That’s not a decoration. The Headless Horseman mural is a permanent fixture.) Every weekend there’s been things going on around here, and tourista have been posing in front of the village hall to take their pictures with the corn stalks and the pumpkins.
