Group of Lively Witches Took Over Marion’s Harbor for a ‘Wicked’ Float
No, you were not going crazy. Things definitely got a little spooky in Marion yesterday.
A coven of witches was spotted in the harbor Sunday morning, but instead of broomsticks, these witches chose another form of transportation.
“The Witches in Sippican traded the brooms for kayaks and paddle boards today,” said the Marion Harbormaster Department. A group of witches could be seen, dressed in their “witchy” best, paddling among the boats in Marion’s Harbor, and you simply do not see that every day.
The Marion Police Department was also on-site, and Sergeant Larry Savery captured the witches afloat.
What Were Those Witches Up to in Marion?
Hosted by the Tri-Town Buzz and a local resident, Bonnie Kirchner, the two invited the town to flock to the water on Sunday for “Wicked Paddle”. Pure Halloween fun, harbor style.
“Dust off your capes, hats, broomsticks, and paddleboards, kayaks, or dinghies!” said the organizers.
Witches and those interested met off Island Wharf and paddled all morning long. The crew topped off the day with some witches brew at Kate’s Simple Eats…okay, it was coffee and mimosas. Witches love champagne, too.
This fun, festive event was no doubt inspired by the hugely popular “Witches Paddle” in Wickford, Rhode Island, where dozens of witches ditch their broomsticks for kayaks, paddle boards, and peddle kayaks for an epic experience in Wickford Harbor.
This year will be its 4th year. If you enjoyed watching the witches drift by in Marion, you’ll love the spectacle in Wickford, happening October 23rd.
