Wags, Witches & Warlocks set for this Saturday in Bethany

The annual Wags, Witches & Warlocks festival, presented by the Leslie Kopp Group, will be held this Saturday, Oct. 25, in downtown Bethany Beach.

The event, designed to benefit the Sussex County SPCA, is open to residents, visitors and their pets, and will feature costume contests, a costume parade, hayrides, pumpkin painting, dog-cookie decorating, a D.J. and much more.

“It is our hope that this event will offer a fun day for families while raising money and awareness for a great cause — the Sussex County SPCA,” said sponsor Leslie Kopp.

Awards will be given out in several costume categories, including funniest costume, cutest costume, scariest costume, best pet costume, best with a pet costume, best family costume and most original costume.

Registration is set for the day of the event, starting at 9 a.m., with a $5 donation to the SPCA welcomed. The parade is set to begin at 10 a.m.

Afterwards, there will be trick-or-treating at participating businesses throughout downtown Bethany. Stores with a Wags, Witches & Warlocks poster on the window will be participating.
