Get ready for spooky fun! Sleepy Hollow Halloween Comes To Gulfstream Park Village

October 27, 2022

Get ready for some ghostly fun! This Halloween, one of South Florida’s favorite events returns to Gulfstream Park Village. On Saturday, October 29th, 2022 from 6:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m., Sleepy Hollow Halloween will transform the open-air lifestyle center into a haunted adventure that is sure to spook even the bravest of souls. The event is free and open to all ages.

As South Florida’s premier entertainment, dining and restaurant destination located on the border of Broward & Miami-Dade Counties, Gulfstream Park Village provides year-round programming and events, including its renowned Halloween extravaganza. This year’s event has been reimagined with a new, spooky theme and plenty of thrills for all ages.

Families are encouraged to dress in costume as they stroll through Gulfstream Park Village to collect candy and sweets, watch performances, and take photos. Guests tagging their photos with #GulfstreamVillage and posting them on Instagram can enter a contest for a chance to win a Gulfstream Village Merchant Gift Card.

The multi-faceted event begins as the storied horseman embarks on a journey to find his missing head with a canter into the Village. All guests are encouraged to catch a glimpse of the Headless Horseman at 7:00 p.m., rearing his horse as he enters a spooky fog-filled entrance at the Gulfstream Park Walking Ring before haunting guests at the start of the evening.

After spotting the Headless Horseman, keep an eye out for a series of flash mobs. These hidden-in-plain-sight performers will transform themselves into a dancing mob of ghoulish tricksters throughout the night, between 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Their performances will be splashed against a backdrop of laser lights and fog machines to set the perfect stage.

From 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m., Gulfstream Park Village will feature spooktacular themed candy stations through the Village, a safe alternative to neighborhood trick-or-treating. With approximately 2,000 pounds of candy, each station also features music, lights, and live strolling performers. The ‘Carn-Evil Performers’ will spook and delight near each candy station, with themes including The Nightmare Before Christmas, Creepy Carnevil Circus, Zombies, Mummies, Vampires, and scary creatures from Stranger Things—like Vecna and a Demogorgon!

Beginning at 8:15 p.m. in the Gulfstream Park Walking Ring is the highly anticipated Evil Costume Contest with up to $4,000 in cash up for grabs. Guests can also enjoy a selection of food trucks including Cuban Guys, Pollo Tropical and La Nostra Pizza, and bars with refreshments for purchase as well as music, performers and Miami’s very own Chris Cruz as the evening’s emcee and DJ.

“We are excited to present our reimagined Halloween event, Sleepy Hollow Halloween,” said Alex Schreer, Director of Experiential Marketing for Madison Marquette, the management company for Gulfstream Park Village. “This event is guaranteed to bring plenty of thrills, chills and ghoulish fun to all who attend. We look forward to welcoming the community to the best Halloween celebration in town!”

The event takes place on Saturday, October 29 and is free and open to the public. For more information, please visit: https://gulfstreampark.com/event/entertainment/sleepy-hollow-halloween
