Guest Bloggers: Jessica and Rebecca Keys - Youth Volunteers
Fall is in the air, and with it comes many exciting events—the leaves change color, school starts up again, and, of course, Halloween. But there is one event on the calendar that certainly takes the cake for our family: Headless Horseman
at Conner Prairie. Of course, you might consider us biased, seeing as we are youth volunteers.
As youth volunteers, it is our duty every year to ensure that each guest makes it safely onto their wagon… knows the rules, and gets to participate in one of our semi-famous screaming contests. We look forward to this exciting job all year, and when the time comes—we go all out. Think pumpkin flashlights and terrible puns.
But my sister and I are not the only ones in our family who are especially active during the Headless Horseman season. If you’ve ever experienced a Conner Prairie-style caramel apple, our mom may have been the smiling lady handing it to you from across the counter. Or maybe it was one of the other 50+ Conner Prairie Alliance
women who run the Apple Store
. Regardless of who you receive your treat from, we recommend dropping by during your visit.
If there is one thing you cannot miss at Conner Prairie, we would definitely say it is Headless Horseman. After all, who doesn’t want a thrilling hayride and a steaming mug of hot apple cider? We certainly enjoy it! So whether you are coming out for a delicious treat, or to see your two favorite wagon-loaders— and by that we mean coming out for the hay ride… there’s plenty of fun to enjoy for everyone!
Headless Horseman: October 14-16, 20-23 & 27-29. Gates open at 6 p.m.
