Along the river and through the woods, on a haunted hayride pulled by hearse you’ll go! The spookiest ride in town has returned to Riverside Park for its 15th year. The hayrides occur every Friday and Saturday nights through Oct. 25, weather permitting. This is an extremely popular attraction each year, so be sure to dress warmly and bring cash for hot chocolate and other hot concessions as you wait for your ride – or consider purchasing an express pass for $15 to avoid the line entirely. This event is fun for all ages, but parents should keep in mind that this ride is designed to scare and shock.
