    November 4, 2018, 11:00 AM - 8:00 PM @ Carousel Park & Hampton Carousel

    Trick or Treating with the Headless Horseman and free candy are part of the fun of Haunted Horse Rides at the historic Hampton Carousel this Halloween season. Rides are Tuesdays through Sundays, Oct. 9-Nov. 4. The carousel and its finely carved and painted horses will be decorated, and carousel staff will be in costume for a frightfully good time. But beware — one of the carousel horses will be occupied by the infamous Headless Horseman. Rides only $1. Built in 1920, the carousel is completely restored to its original beauty and housed in its own weather-protected pavilion on the city’s downtown waterfront. Call 757-727-1102 for more information.
