Woodland Opera House Theatre

“The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” is a perfect Halloween treat. This family-friendly version of the spooky tale is presented with all the thrills, chills and laughs to keep young audiences on the edge of their seats.

The storybook tale revolves around the three main characters; the bumbling, awkward schoolteacher, Ichabod (Drew Thomsen), the coquettish Katrina (Hallie Tobia), and Ichabod’s brutish rival, Brom Bones (Jason Goldman). There are also four storytellers (Calvin Davey, Whitney Hunt, Scarlett Kaufusi, and Katheryn Ostergard) who narrate the tale and take on several characters in the story. This adaptation remains dedicated to the spirit of the original work yet expertly involves young people with lots of suspense and comedy saving the best for last – the ride of the headless horseman (Steve Cairns). The show is directed by Crissi Cairns Kessler with stage management by Steve Cairns.

Audience members are encouraged to come to the Saturday matinee in costume for a special treat and to attend  “Trick or Treat on Main Street” immediately after the show at 3 p.m. Join your friends and neighbors downtown for a fun, safe and entertaining trick or treat venue. Participating business with candy will be marked by  black and orange balloons. 
The Main Street Trick or Treat event will run from 3-6:30 p.m.

All reserved tickets for “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” are $5 each. Tickets are available at the box office at 340 2nd St. Monday through Friday from 10-1 and 2-5, by calling 666-9617, or at the door. 
SATURDAY Oct. 30th               
Davis' Farmers Market
Central Park (Corner of C and 4th St)

 This year's Halloween-themed festival features fun-filled activities and harvest specialties for the whole family. Davis Farm to School, a project of Davis Farmers Market Foundation, is sponsoring the annual Avenue of Scarecrows Silent Auction and Fundraiser. There will be more than 50 scarecrows for visitors to pose with for photos. The highest bidders at the Scarecrow Silent Auction—held from 9 am to 12:30 pm—will take home their favorites. All scarecrows were created by Davis school students, and all proceeds support Davis public school gardening and recycling programs.

The Pumpkin Patch, hosted by Soroptomist Club of Davis, is back by popular demand.
Music Matt will perform his high energy, fun music that caters to children (and is very parent-friendly) on the Oak Tree Deck; Peter Franklin Band will bring their crowd-pleasing Americana music. The children's area will feature hands-on crafts and science activities, including harvest headdresses and hair braiding by Lambda Omicron Xi, chemistry activities and demonstrations by the UC Davis Chemistry Club and Explorit Science Center, and kids craft activities offered by UC Davis La Raza Law Student Association and area 4-H Clubs. Animals include piglets from Woodland farmer Jim Neilson's farm, raptors from the California Raptor Center, and farm animals from Davis Senior High School's Future Farmers of America. Pony Ranch Parties hosts the pony rides, and Alex the Balloon Man and Dilly Dally the Clown will show off their balloon wizardry. Central Park Gardens will unveil their new caterpillar sculpture and host a plant sale (benefiting the gardens), while also offering eco-friendly gardening information. All visitors to the Gardens will receive free flower seeds to plant now for spring blooming.

This year's Fall Festival Food Faire will feature farm-fresh pizzas (a fundraiser for Davis Farm to School), fresh pumpkin pie by the slice with whipped cream, pumpkin ice cream, and seasonal delights prepared by Davis restaurateurs Fat Face and Monticello Seasonal Cuisine, plus tamales and burritos, Indian foods and fresh popped kettle corn.
