Experienced paddlers are invited to in the fall foliage and welcome the season with a casual group paddle in Greater Victoria’s second annual What’SUP Witches event.
Organizers call on witches and warlocks to drop the broomstick and pick up a paddle for a spooky session at the Thetis Lake main beach.
Wear all black and witch hats, bring a paddle board, kayak, canoe, floatie, flippers or whatever.
All paddle levels are welcome, and no one will be left behind, organizers note, but all participants should feel comfortable on a board. There will be no official instruction, leadership, liability, lifeguard, safety personnel or supervision.
The free witchy paddle is Sunday, Oct. 1, with participants meeting at 2 p.m. and gliding onto the water at 2:30.
