Artist's Description

This gentleman was a dead ringer for Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. I am sure you agree. We go to Sleepy Hollow every Halloween season, and they used to have an event called Legend Weekend where they had old colonial village set up at Philippsburg Manor with a storyteller who told verbatim the Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving. It was held after dark and the only light in the village was candle light and bon fires. There were pirates, witches, ghosts and yes, the headless horseman. This pirate was a visitor believe it or not, who looked better in costume than the pirate en-enactors!

When I say they USED to have Legend weekend – they now have a horror weekend with ghouls and gross characters – quite disappointing. Legend weekend to me made more sense with the rich history of Washington Irving’s Sleepy Hollow. What can I say? At least I have great photos and rich memories of the colonial Legend Weekend of the past.
