The village administrator says the Headless Horseman is also taking part Friday evening.
He says the actors are also visiting the grave of Washington Irving in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery.
Irving’s eerie 1819 short story, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” has helped make the village and surrounding area a tourist destination at Halloween.
It also inspired the TV show, in which the story’s hero, Ichabod Crane, is transported to the modern world.READ MORE: NYC Gun Violence: Mass Shooting On Corona Sidewalk Among More Than A Dozen Weekend Incidents
However, the show is produced in Wilmington, North Carolina, rather than Sleepy Hollow, which is 25 miles north of New York City.
In 2013, the town reported a boost in tourism due to the airing of the show.
