The 7th Annual Morro Bay Witch’s Paddle brought a welcomed bit of Halloween fun to the Morro Bay Harbor Oct. 30, with all manner from Glenda the Good Witch sharing a paddle board with three hags including the Wicked Witch of the West, a few warlocks and even Maleficent, the colorful cadre was quite a sight on a clear and sunny afternoon.

The rite started with a handful of women who got together to celebrate Halloween and have a bit of naughty fun, paddling down the waterfront. Since then, the specter has grown with this year’s count rising to about 100.

The Witch’s Paddle is a fundraiser for the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County and participants don a witch or warlock costume and paddle their broomsticks, err… paddleboards, kayaks, outriggers, cauldrons, or other vessels.

The costumes were as varied as the personalities who wore them.
