Sea Witch is Smokin’ at the 23rd Annual Sea Witch Halloween & Fiddler’s Festival! This spooktacular event will be held on October 26-28, 2012. Dragons & monsters of all ages are invited to join the fun! The heart of the event is located in Downtown Rehoboth Beach and expands into the Town of Dewey Beach and onto Coastal Highway.
The weekend begins on Friday with fun activities such as the tyke byke procession on the Boardwalk. The choo choo express and family movie will both be held in Grove Park. Don’t forget your chairs and blankets. Lantern tours at the Indian River Lifesaving Station are also held on Friday. On Saturday, tens of thousands of people fill the ocean block of Rehoboth Avenue to watch the popular costume parade, lead by the 2010 Business of the Year, Nicola Pizza and the 2011 Business of the Year, Apple Electric. The parade begins at the Convention Center where costumed goblins, local bands and floats merge together and proceed down the Avenue.
After the parade, weekend activities include: scarecrow making, beach games, horse parade on the beach, broom tossing contest, and much more. Feeling lucky? Purchase a raffle ticket or join the hunt for the “Sea Witch.” With moon light guiding your steps, finish the days fun by trick or treating with the merchants. Bandstand performances are on-going.
Calling all monsters…With tails! The 1 & 1/2 mile best costumed dog parade continues to be one of the most popular events of the weekend. The little monsters line up at the north end of the Boardwalk and wag their way south to Laurel Street & return to Rehoboth Avenue from Laurel Street. Past entries include bow-wows dressed as cowboys, lifeguards, and cartoon characters. The award winning Sea Witch Festival brings families from near and far to the resort area for a fun filled weekend. For more info, visit www.SeaWitchFestival.com or call 302-227-2233 x.0.
