Jay Ghoul’s House Curiosities: The Mystery of the Pharaoh’s Curse October 19-31 ~Tarrytown~

Found in Yonkers Logo

This Halloween’s all-new edition of Jay Ghoul’s House of Curiosities is based on classic mystery stories. It’s 1922, and a group of archeologists has unearthed an Ancient Egyptian tomb – but they barely have time to celebrate their discovery before the diggers each start dropping dead! Your group has arrived at the dig site (Lyndhurst mansion) to help determine the cause of the deaths – is it the Pharaoh’s curse or a cold-blooded killer?

This Halloween, you must solve the mystery before tragedy strikes again! Take a journey through the mansion to meet the cast of zany archeologists, local personalities, and unscrupulous smugglers. But be careful…each of them has their own secrets and superstitions.

About the performance: The 40-minute performances of Jay Ghoul’s House of Curiosities take place exclusively at night when the mansion comes alive through eerie lighting and Halloween decorations. While the evening experience will appeal to adults, teens, and school-aged children. This is not a Halloween haunted house – the scariest thing may just be the bad puns!

Halloween at Lyndhurst September 30 thru October 31 ~Tarrytown~

Found in Yonkers Logo

During the day, Lyndhurst offers Classic Mansion Tours – with a Halloween twist. The first floor is decorated for the fall with lush foliage and Halloween vignettes throughout each room. The second floor of the mansion is not decorated and visitors can see Lyndhurst’s main rooms in all their traditional splendor. These tours also highlight many Gothic furnishings that Lyndhurst unveils only during the Halloween season.

For those wanting a traditional tour experience adorned with seasonal decorations, this is the best option. The guided tour will focus on the home’s many original furnishings and decorative arts as well as the history and architecture of the building…

This year, Lyndhurst presents a completely new outdoor landscape experience called Futurescape.
From visitor parking to the mansion, Lyndhurst’s carriage drive will be lined with a stunning display of futuristic outdoor sculptures. Local sculptor Malcolm MacDougall, III, an ArtsWestchester 50 for 50 Outstanding Artist, will curate the exhibition of exciting, contemporary metal sculptures on parcels of Lyndhurst’s sprawling landscape. The display will give visitors the opportunity to explore areas of the site that they would not normally discover.

Found in Yonkers Logo

Editor’s Note: I’ve gone to Horseman’s Hollow several times and it is fantastic! Enjoy!

Philipsburg Manor transforms into a terrifying landscape ruled by the undead, the evil, and the insane. Visitors begin walking a haunted trail, stumbling upon scary scenes of a town driven mad by the Headless Horseman. Those who survive the trail enter the terrifying ruins of Ichabod’s Schoolhouse, where they must endure a twisted maze of horrors too terrible to describe, only to end up in the lair of the Horseman.

The Avett Brothers in Concert October 25-27 ~Port Chester~

Found in Yonkers Logo

In 2001, banjoist Scott and guitarist Seth formed The Avett Brothers with standup bass player Bob. Growing up in Concord, NC, the boys immersed themselves in their musician dad’s record collection, falling in love with Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Crosby, Stills & Nash. They rose to the status of genre stalwarts over the course of six albums, including 2007’s acclaimed Emotionalism.

The book is open though, and the next chapter for The Avett Brothers will definitely be the brightest, boldest, and biggest yet.
