The Annual Witch’s Paddle will hit the water in Morro Bay Harbor starting at 11 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 29.
Join in the fun and dress in your favorite witch costume and drag your kayak, paddle board (broomstick?) to Coleman Park to launch along with all the other witches and warlocks.
Established in 2013, this year’s paddle will be the 10th edition of an event that grows bigger every year. Starting out with a handful of adult Halloween fans who decided to paddle down the bay the Witch’s Paddle has grown to about 400 paddlers in 2022.
Such Halloween celebrations are held all over the U.S., just about everywhere there’s a safe harbor to paddle in, including Cape Cod, Rhode Island and of course Salem, Mass., where witches got a bad rep back in the day.
Morro Bay’s Witch’s Paddle is also a cool spectator and photographic event, as well. And don’t think that because you’re a man, you can’t paddle with the witches, as every year a handful of brave warlocks and wizards dress up and hit the water, too.
