Sullivan O&W Rail Trail Alliance to host 1st annual haunted history event
[HURLEYVILLE] – Come out and celebrate the spooky autumn spirit at the 1st annual HO&WL Haunted History Walk on Saturday, October 29th at 5:30 PM in Hurleyville. Sullivan County Historian John Conway will lead a guided walk along the Hurleyville section of the Sullivan O&W Rail Trail, detailing the railroad’s more ominous past.
“The HO&WL will be a special way to experience the Sullivan O&W Rail Trail, and is part of a year-long series of events that demonstrate the trail is for everyone,” says Freda Eisenberg, Planning Commissioner and Chair of the Sullivan O&W Rail Trail Alliance.
Forest- or train-themed costumes are encouraged. Participants should bring a flashlight. Well-behaved dogs are also welcome; but must remain on a leash. Visit the event Facebook page at bit.ly/HOWLSullivan or call (845) 807-0531 for more information.
Fall festivities along the rail trail will continue the following day on Sunday, October 30th in Parksville, with the Parksville Priorities 2nd annual Halloween event. There will be live music, food and fun in multiple hamlet locations, including the scenic Parksville section of the Sullivan O&W Rail Trail which runs alongside the Little Beaverkill. Festivities begin at 2 PM; parade will kick off at 4 PM.
The Sullivan O&W Rail Trail Alliance grew out of the 2019 Sullivan O&W Rail Trail Feasibility Study and is a partnership of local government entities, non-profits, and volunteers which serve as the stewards for the trail.
