PORTLAND, Ore. – A coven of witches traded in broomsticks for paddles and took to the Willamette River Saturday in what is becoming a new Portland tradition on the weekend before Halloween.
This was the second year for the Stand Up Paddleboard Witch Paddle.
Video from last year’s paddle made headlines across the world. KATU News talked with one witch who said she traveled all the way from Nevada to take part in the event.
Building on the success of last year’s event, participating witches and warlocks turned the event into a good cause by hosting a warm coat drive. Items collected will be given to the Sunshine Division and Our House.
