CNY’s Spooktacular Weekend

Posted by  //  September 20, 2013  //  News

October 25, 26 & 27

Like wine?  Like beer?  Like Halloween?  Then you’re going to LOVE Central New York’s Spooktacular Weekend 2013.

For three fun-filled days — October 25, 26 & 27, 2013 — the Ramada Hotel & Conference Center in Cortland (2 River Street) will be transformed into an oh-so-spooky haunted house of horrors, beginning with Friday evening’s 5th Annual Spooktacular at the hotel’s Crown City Steak House & Pub, continuing with Saturday’s halloWINEfest (wine festival) in the Buckingham Ballroom, and concluding with Sunday afternoon’s boos&BREWSfest (beer festival) also in the ballroom. Costumes are optional but encouraged for all three events, and we urge you to take advantage of the Ramada’s special festival room rate to stay on-site for the entire weekend.

Friday, October 25 – 4:30pm-midnight
