1:47 PM - Note from Sleepy Hollow about fire. (posted by Webmaster)
MESSAGE FROM NATHANIEL JAMES, GENERAL MANAGER AT SLEEPY HOLLOW SPORTS PARK:

As you may have heard, crews responded to a fire at Festival Park (home of the Des Moines Renaissance Faire and Sleepy Hollow’s Haunted Scream Park) around 2:00am this morning. The fire was contained to three vendor buildings, and did not spread to any of Sleepy Hollow’s main buildings or attractions. Although the cause of this fire is under investigation, nobody was present at the time of the fire and there were no injuries. We are all shocked to hear this news, however, this occurrence will NOT affect any of Sleepy Hollow’s activities or festivals held throughout the year. We plan to have these three small buildings rebuilt in time for the 2015 Des Moines Renaissance Faire, held the first three weekends of September.
