We Welcome The Extraordinary Entertainments Of Pete and Chris Amusements!

As Chris puts it:

Well, Pete and I have quite a bit of experience in the entertainment side of things.  For nearly 15 years, we’ve participated in a number of different aspects and forms of the performing arts, including acting, singing, directing and producing.  In addition to that, we worked for a number of years at various amusement parks.  To say we understand fun and entertainment would be an understatement.  So doing something like this which involves aspects of performance and behind-the-scenes know-how was a natural fit.

The Happy Haggs Dance Troupe

The Happy Haggs is a theatrical group of amateur, volunteer maidens, mothers and crones who model their dance after Wolshager Hexenbrut, the dancing witches, of Wolfshagen, Germany. We bring Joy through the Magic of dance throughout Central New York, USA. We dance and laugh and act a little silly; okay we act a lot silly, especially our cackling contests. We dance at public events, nursing homes, parades, local community events, and many more. We are loved by our fans with whom we interact and tease incessantly.

Our Fabulous Costume & Cosplay Contest

We have some incredible attendees! You don’t have to dress up in any way to be a part of the event, but you’re invited to do so if you want.

And you can win prizes!
