A Night on Fire turns up the heat in Sleepy Hollow

SLEEPY HOLLOW, NY (June 6, 2016) — Historic Hudson Valley kicks off the July 4 holiday weekend with a fire-juggling event that could rival any display of fireworks. During “A Night on Fire,” visitors will be able to watch flame-wielding, fire-eating performers light up the night Friday through Sunday, June 30-July 2, at Philipsburg Manor.

A Night on Fire is a one-hour choreographed performance featuring juggling, dancing, spinning, and sword fighting by A Different Spin, part of the Boston Circus Guild. Musician Jim Keyes offers pre-show entertainment and enlightens guests on the history of the traveling circus. Those looking to cool down after all the adrenaline-pumping action can dig into Blue Pig of Croton’s homemade ice cream. The event is ideal for all ages.

Performances are at 8:30pm on Friday, 8 and 9:30pm on Saturday, and 8pm on Sunday.

Seating is limited and Historic Hudson Valley recommends purchasing tickets for A Night on Fire in advance at www.hudsonvalley.org. Tickets online are $22 for adults and $16 for children 17 and under. Members of Historic Hudson Valley receive a $5 per ticket discount. There is a $2 per ticket surcharge for purchases made over the phone or in person.
