Rain or shine, a slice of downtown White Plains will transform into a block-rockin' outdoor venue, complete with delicious food, local bars, and a well-known brewery.

Traditionalists beware—The Haunt at Rocky Ledge is no mere haunted house. The frights start in the middle of the woods as guests find themselves navigating the Forest of Lost Souls under direction from a ghastly tour ghoul. If they're lucky enough to make it past the terrifying trees, wanderers will soon find themselves lost in the twisting paths of the Field of Screams corn maze, searching desperately for a finish line that merely waits to usher them to another frightful fate in the Haunted Barn. Patrons who manage to survive long enough to make it to the haunt's end and the final Last Rites attraction can rally their spirits and replenish their strength at the snack bar or head home to hide under the covers.
If you want to learn the differences between soccer and futsal, you won't find a better classroom than Westchester Futsal.

On any given day, the organization's experienced coaches can be seen teaching the traditional 11-on-11 format of soccer or the quicker paced 5-on-5 format of futsal, which is popular in Brazil and with foosball figurines that want more shots at the ball.
