“Harrodsburg is such a beautiful and vibrant city. I am in love with the town’s history, architecture and incredible residents. When I stepped foot into Old Fort Harrod, my jaw was on the floor. I am so excited for residents and visitors to see this beautiful historical property transformed into the village of Sleepy Hollow with this world-class experience,” said director and producer of the Sleepy Hollow Experience Brian Clowdus. “This family-friendly event is for everyone, with ghost stories, live music, lots of laughs and good spooky fun. Follow the characters to different areas of the fort as you find yourself part of the action in this 360°, immersive, interactive experience. It’s as if you have stepped directly into the story. This is going to be the Kentucky Halloween event of 2023!”
