Holiday Hollow: 25th and Final Season of Family Fun

This year marks a quarter of a century for Holiday Hollow, and the last year of the Halloween and Pirate-themed mini-Renaissance fair that has delighted families for ages. If you’ve never been, this is your last chance to check it out. If you’ve gone before, don’t miss your opportunity to say goodbye with one last trip to this amazing October destination!

Holiday Hollow is full of surprises; from a Haunted Parlor to a Mad Tea Party, Talking Pumpkins, Fairy Tales and the Wacky Witch’s Spooky Forest cooking show, there is plenty to see and do when you visit. Get lost in Hook’s Dark Maze, or witness the Hollow’s famous pirate sword fighting. Eat your fill at the Popcorn Wagon, or show your “spirit” with a custom face painting.

This year, Holiday Hollow welcomes two new shows – the comedic “Witches’ Coven” and a new Gypsy comedy show. Both are sure to delight, introducing new acts and characters never seen before.

You don’t have to worry about getting rained out or missing the adventure – because Holiday Hollow is open every Saturday and Sunday throughout the rest of October – rain or shine. Hours run from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (with a 2:00 p.m. end time on particularly rainy days). Admission is $13 for adults and kids over 10, and $12 for kids age 3-10, with children two and under free!

When you’ve had your fill of the fun, take home a keepsake from Treasure Island or Cricket Cottage – a lasting memory of your time mingling with the ruffians, rascals, and spooky scoundrels who call Holiday Hollow home. 

Holiday Hollow is located just off Exit 48A on the New York State Thruway (I-90). For directions or more information, call 585-762-8160 or visit their website at http://www.holidayhollow.com/Holiday_Hollow/Home.html.
