Created in 2012, the Witches on Water Street event has grown significantly in its small lifetime. The first year attracted approximately 100 children and year two saw almost 400 participants. The Saturday event allows businesses and restaurants to welcome families into their stores while handing out candy to costumed children. A scavenger hunt was hosted along the Downtown route in years 1 & 2 where groups are on the hunt for the Witch of Water Street. Costumed volunteers are scattered along the route hosting pumpkin decorating stations, games, storytelling and various other activities which change from year to year.
