At right, Children and adults enjoying themselves at Warner Library’s Headless Halloween Mini-Golf event.
Over 2,500 people came to the Library for the event. “We wanted to create something new and special for Halloween that was for both kids and adults,” said library director Maureen Petry. “We were hoping to engage the community and have them come into the library and enjoy the event – and they did. They responded.”
The event ran from 10:00 am in the morning until 4:00 pm in the afternoon, and then reopened at 6:00 pm with more horrific and gruesome decorations aimed at a more adult crowd. It kicked off when Sleepy Hollow Mayor Ken Wray competed against Tarrytown Village Trustee Rebecca McGovern in the inaugural annual inter-village Halloween Mini-Golf Cup Challenge. McGovern defeated Wray and won the cup for Tarrytown.
All proceeds for the Warner Library Headless Halloween Mini-Golf event went to the Library and will be put towards future renovations of the third floor community rooms.
