Preparing explorers for jaunts through the waterways and paths of the historic Erie Canal, the staffers of Erie Canal Boat Company outfit visitors with bicycle, kayak, canoe, pontoon, and paddleboat rentals, as well as appropriate supplies. They lead group and private lessons, teaching tender-footed kayakers the basics of safety and stroke skills for recreational, competitive, or impress-your-favorite-seal's-mom kayaking. They also host weekly paddling clubs and races, as well as annual regattas, and stock a variety of gear at their shop to ensure pioneers are suitably appointed for paddling and pedaling excursions.
Ghouls and ghosts roam the dark corridors of the Haunted House of Horrors, where terror lurks at every turn. Explorers enter the house in groups of two or three at a time, navigating the hallways as actors create a frightening world around them, causing their hair to stand on end as it realizes it lives in a scary skull. After surviving the spooky confines, visitors can refill their souls with bites of Maxie’s ice cream or seasonal snacks such as cider and donuts.
The Henrietta Moose Family Center and NaberHood Haunts, under their pavilion, opens their doors to reveal seasonal conversions. Thrill-seekers will move through the center's spooky hallways, testing their nerves against hiding actors, fog machines, strobe lights, and total darkness. Thrill-seekers can also test their skills at zombie paintball. In addition to the regular spooking hours, the center also hosts a special event for kids on the afternoon of October 19 from 1-3 p.m., where brave young souls can experience the fun with the lights on and all horrifying lima beans hidden from sight.
All proceeds from the haunted house will benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Rochester, Moose Charities, the Make a Wish Foundation, and the Henrietta Food Cupboard.
Black Button Distilling wasn't just born from the brilliant idea to craft homemade booze. It was born from the dirt. Dictated by the available grains and ingredients, the spirits made on-site are distilled largely from locally-sourced ingredients, including the corn that makes the un-aged moonshine, or the soft white wheat grown on a family-owned farm. Due out in 2015, head distiller and founder Jason Barrett has also developed a four-grain bourbon, which is currently aging in white oak barrels and learning the importance of growing up to be delicious.
