The Haunted Hayrides of Greater Rochester - Experts claim that the ghost of reputed psychopath William Fee (the only person ever executed in Wayne County, NY) roams the countryside every Autumn revisiting the scene of his murderous rampage. This annual event takes you down a desolate road, winding through eerie acres of apple orchards into the deep, dark woods. Attracting over 20,000 people each year, this frightful event will keep you on the edge of your seat and screaming. 3329 Eddy Rd., Williamson.
