South Florida’s Favorite Halloween Experience Is Back for Another Frightful Night
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL — Returning again for another year of thrills and chills, the Headless Horseman Halloween gallops into Gulfstream Park Village on Saturday, October 28. Located on the border of Broward and Miami-Dade Counties, Gulfstream Park Village will be transformed into a delightfully eerie Halloween destination that will scare and delight guests of all ages. Taking place from 6:30-9:30 p.m., the Headless Horseman Halloween is open to the public and FREE to attend.
In gearing up for the event, Gulfstream Park Village is excited to announce the Spirit Halloween pop up store, set to open August 15 at 600 Silks Run. A destination for Halloween costumes, accessories and decorations, shoppers can start planning their perfect Halloween persona now with an unbeatable selection of classic and contemporary costumes.
Guests should arrive early to enjoy all the festivities – if they dare! At 7 p.m. the storied Headless Horseman embarks on a journey to find his missing head with a canter into the Village. Beware as he enters a spooky fog-filled entrance at the Gulfstream Park Walking Ring before haunting guests throughout the evening.
Thrills lurk everywhere! From 6:30-8 p.m., Gulfstream Park Village will feature spooktacular themed candy stations throughout the Village, a safe alternative to neighborhood trick-or-treating. With approximately 2,000 pounds of candy, each station also features music, lights, and live strolling performers. The ‘Carn-Evil Performers’ will spook and delight near each candy station, with themes including The Nightmare Before Christmas, Creepy Carn-Evil Circus, Zombies, Mummies, Vampires, and scary creatures from Stranger Things.
Beginning at 8 p.m. in the Gulfstream Park Walking Ring is the highly anticipated Evil Costume Contest with up to $1,000 in cash up for grabs. Guests can also enjoy a selection of food trucks including Cuban Guys, The Brothers Kitchen Grill, and La Nostra Pizza, and bars with refreshments for purchase as well as music, a laser light show, performers and Miami’s own Chris Cruz as the Emcee/DJ.
“As South Florida’s top Halloween experience, the Headless Horseman Halloween offers guests of all ages a thrilling way to enjoy the spookiest night of the year,” said Alex Schreer, Director of Experiential Marketing for Gulfstream Park Village. “We are excited to again present this one-of-a-kind event and welcome the community to a safe night of fun.”
