HALLOWEEN OPEN HOUSE AT HARNESS RACING MUSEUM

Goshen, NY – Bring the kids to the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame, 240 Main Street, Goshen, New York on Saturday, October 26, from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. for a fun-filled old-fashioned Halloween celebration and a walk through our spooky stable. Participate in creepy crafts, play hauntingly fun games and enjoy sweet treats. Decorate a headless horseman, spider mummy or ghostly monster pumpkin to frighten off those Halloween spirits and make a bat-styled candy box filled with sweet treats.  Pumpkins are limited and are first come, first served, so don’t be late! There will be a spooky skeletal horse toy for every child and refreshments for the entire family.

The spooky Halloween adventure is topped off with a heart-pounding ride on our 3-D Harness Racing Simulator. Our mascot, Hall of Fame Harry will be here to pose for pictures with young gargoyles, ghosts, witches, pirates, super heroes and such.  Children are encouraged to come in costumes of all kinds. The first 40 children pay $5 and receive a pumpkin to decorate. Bring your own pumpkin and for $3 we will provide the spooky pumpkin decorations. Parents are free. Reservations are not accepted.

Refreshments are sponsored by ShopRite of Chester & Soons Orchard of New Hampton.

Pumpkins are provided by Soons Orchard & Manza Farms of Montgomery.

Programs are made possible with support from the United States Trotting Association and the Agriculture & New York State Horse Breeding Development Fund.  For further information on the Museum’s educational workshops or children’s birthday parties, please contact the Education Department (845) 294-6330 or email [email protected].
