Rehoboth Beach hosts the 26th Annual Sea Witch Halloween & Fiddler’s festival! Bring your family bring your friends…. even your dog! This wonderfully wicked weekend entails activities for all!
The festival runs October 23rd – October 25th beginning with a costume parade at 11a.m Saturday, October 24th. Rehoboth Avenue will be closed as thousands of costumed participants, local bands, decorated cars & Nur Shriners occupy the streets and sidewalks of town.
Following the parade, head on over to the Rehoboth Beach Convention center for some bluegrass favorites at the Fiddler’s festival. Bring the family or leave the kids at the beach, as children are invited to participate in the Old Fashion Beach games including pumpkin dash, slippery swords, and hula twist off. There will also be a wacky broom-tossing contest for those who arrive via “broom”.
The Sea Witch Hunt is on!! Amongst the abundance of Saturday activities, clue seekers will roam all over town to locate the infamous “Sea Witch”. A 100-clue list will be provided to sneakily hint its exact whereabouts. Sponsored by TD Bank, the winner will receive a cash prize, the following day, Sunday October 25th.
It’s not over yet! On Sunday, October 25th, partake in either the Sea Witch 5k of 1 Mile Fright Walk. Both start at 9a.m at the Grove Park. Many of the participants, including entire families arrive in costume!
Did someone say bring your dog? Yep! Dogs are invited to show off their unique Halloween costumes as well. From lifeguards to police dogs, Egyptians to cowboys, we’ve seen an assortment. Wagging their way down the boardwalk, or escorted by float, these dogs will give the crowds an eyeful. Winners will be announced at the Bandstand following the parade!
With events around the clock, it’s certainly no shock that this weekend is an annual fall favorite. For a full list of the weekend activities, click here! To make the weekend a reality, be sure to check out Hotel Rehoboth as it is in prime location of all the festivities!
