Nesting season has begun for the great horned owls. Join Naturalist Jim D’Angelo for an indoor introduction to the great-horned owl and other New York State owls. Then venture out on an owl prowl looking and listening for the nocturnal kings of the sky. The program is free and open to the public; please remember to dress for the weather.  Snowshoes will be available if needed.

The January full moon is called the Wolf Moon because in days past the wolves could be heard howling at this time of the year. We do not have wolves to listen to but who knows what we might see or hear during a moon walk; owls, fox, deer or other creatures of the winter night. Even if we do not see any wildlife it will be interesting to observe the wetlands, woodlands and fields by the light of the Moon. Snowshoes will be available if needed.

At 7pm the witching hour begins as we welcome guests to enter our new Village of the Damned. Your admission provides you access to unique Halloween entertainment with our comedy-horror shows created by the cast of our very own professional Sterling Renaissance Festival actors. Enter at your own risk as you will be lured by demons, pursued by zombies, and sought by vampires whom wish to feast on your blood. Along your travels you will interact with gruesome village inhabitants and be subjected to mischief and evil. Stops along the way will often provide for misguided security while partaking in the comedy-horror of our live stage shows. Don’t let your guard down as you proceed through this lost village of the damned, because danger looms at every turn.

You will also have opportunity to foresee your destiny through the eyes of a gypsy or desperately seek to find your way out of the Hospital of Horror maze, at an additional cost of $5. What is for certain is that you will not leave the same as you came in…or perhaps not at all! You have been forewarned!

Recommended for ages 10 and up. Come hungry to enjoy some brain food at the Fiery Pits of Hell’s Kitchen concession stand.

Join us in creating apple cider the old fashion way with a people powered fruit press. Help, wash, grind, press, pasteurize and best of all, taste the fresh apple cider. While going through the process we will discuss the history of apples, apple products, the apple-growing industry and the many different varieties of apples. Back by popular demand – take a taste test of over a dozen different varieties of apples grown by local orchards and place your vote for your favorite. A special THANK YOU to Ontario Orchards for supplying the apples for pressing and tasting.
