Conner Prairie Headless Horseman Festival set to begin

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The options are almost limitless when it comes to sights and activities at Conner Prairie this time of year during its Headless Horseman festival.

Fall is the perfect time to enjoy the vast grounds at Conner Prairie, and Conner Prairie’s Corn Maze has been voted among the top 10 in the country by Readers’ Digest.

Rich Cooper, vice president-chief program officer for Conner Prairie, joined “Life.Style.Live!” on Wednesday along with the Headless Horseman to share what you can expect and how they’re different from other Halloween festivities.

Key experiences at the Headless Horseman event include a haunted corn maze, the Headless Horseman hayride, a tubing hill, bounce houses, a carnival ride, fall treats from Conner Prairie’s Apple Store, and a special “Ichabrewed Crane” beer from Sun King.

The festival begins Thursday and runs each Thurday-Sunday through Oct. 30. Admission is free for members, and $20 for nonmembers. People who qualify for “Access Pass” can buy tickets for as little as $2.

Conner Prairie is a historic place that inspires curiosity and fosters learning. They are also a Smithsonian Affiliate with two brand new experiences for guests, the Spark!Lab and the Habitat.
