He's back! The Headless Horseman, the mysterious rider whose unsettled spirit roams the plains, is back in the saddle again. He only rides through our 8 Great Towns once each year, so don't miss him weekends in October, 6 to 9 p.m., at Conner Prairie.

Before or after your ride, enjoy these other nightly events:

  • Pumpkin-A-Pult
  • Shocking Science
  • Dancing at the Hoedown
  • Facepainting (additional fee)
  • Scary-o-ke & Glow Tent
  • Kids Crafts
  • Puppet Show
  • Storytelling

New this year! On select dates, make a gravestone rubbing and hear about cemetery art and symbolism during Tombstone Tales. Or learn about fascinating -- and sometimes scary-- birds like falcons, owls and vultures during the Birds of Prey program. Climb aboard the old wagon and get ready to be scared silly.
