The Sea Witch “Squeezer” is coming to Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach Resort Area on October 26-28!

From pony rides and hay rides to costume parades, live musical entertainment, and tasty foods from local vendors, the Sea Witch Festival will fill the streets with seasonal excitement! There is no general admission to the festival itself, but certain activities may have minimal participation fees.

Get your costumes on and parade through the town! There will be trick-or-treating, a Saturday costume parade, and a Live WRDE Coast TV Broadcast of the Annual Sea Witch® Festival Costume Parade. Sunday will also feature a Best-Costumed Dog Parade, so make sure you have something cute for your furry friends to dress up in.
