Philipsburg Manor

Sleepy Hollow

All Ages

Event description: Gangs of swashbuckling pirates take over Philipsburg Manor. Musical pirates, belly dancers, and scallywags of all sorts roam the grounds, looking to pick a pocket or two. Kids can take part in the Pieces of Eight Treasure Hunt, wiggle their way into a pirate shipwreck, trade barbs with a clever, talkative parrot, learn to speak and act like a bloody pirate, view captured mermaids, wander through a museum of oddities, get scarred for life (well, for a day at least) at Lady Molly Roger's Tattoo Shoppe, test their cannon shot capabilities, help take out the British in Davy Jones' Revenge, and seize some booty in the Thieves Market. Feast on fabulous foods prepared by Tastefully Yours, and down pints of grog created by Captain Lawrence Brewery. Purchase tickets in advance online at hudsonvalley.org or call 914-631-8200.
