Hundreds Of ‘Witches’ Paddle Down River In USA

This might sound like fairy tale Hollywood movie but bystanders near Oregon river were stunned to see hundreds of ‘witches’ paddling down a river in a traditional festival.

The “witches” traded in broomsticks for paddles in Oregon during the last weekend before Halloween, reports Toronto Sun.
The costumed coven paddled six miles (10 kilometres) on boards Saturday along the Willamette River, which divides the city of Portland.
The Oregonian/OregonLive reported that the paddleboard event started two years ago with a handful of participants but now attracts hundreds.

Participants donated packages of socks, underwear and T-shirts to a local non-profit group before they started paddling.
Spectators who were caught off guard by the witches watched from the shoreline.
