The Witches Dance
The County Park is the location of the witches dance on the beach the morning (10:00am) of the 31st. Please begin registering on the Home Page of the City website on October 7th and registration will close on October 21st so that we may anticipate and plan for the event. Once you register we will provide you with the music and dance.
The dance will take place on the beach in front of the Dunes House. There will be ample parking at the Park.
The witches will be distanced, masked, costumed, have their brooms, and be ready to dance around the smoking caldron complemented by last year’s carnival music and dance steps! Witches may be accompanied by a guest that will enjoy the viewing and celebrate the witchery, revelry, and festivities.
