Scare Up A Good Time in Hamilton County

Being scared was never so fun!

Watch Washington Irving’s time-treasured classic, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, come to life at Headless Horseman at Conner Prairie Interactive History Park in Fishers. Enjoy a campfire and Halloween goodies, but be on the lookout for spooks, goblins and that infamous Headless Horseman as he makes his ride. 

In Noblesville, find your way through the straw maze at Stonycreek Farm. Their Pumpkin Festival runs September 30-October 31, offering pony and train rides, a blacksmith, fishing pond and straw maze. If you dare, try the zipline that soars high above the farm from a 30’ tower!

Stuckey Farm in Sheridan also offers the best picking of the season this fall. This working orchard and farm is home to 4,000 trees with 27 different varieties of apples. In addition to picking your own or buying your favorites in the old barn farm market, you can watch them press cider and take a wagon ride. 

All that picking and walking can scare up an appetite, so take care of it at Bub’s Burgers & Ice Cream in Carmel’s Arts & Design District. While the restaurant’s name first came from a family nickname, it now stands for their signature menu item – the Big Ugly Burger™.
