The Witches of Narberth

October 25, 2014

Before the Halloween Parade and trick-or-treating get started, there's a free family event that's become a Main Line kid favorite – The Witches of Narberth! On Saturday, October 25, at 1pm, on the corner of Forrest and Haverford Avenues, Halloween kicks off with this popular annual scavenger hunt. Children of all ages are invited to join in this free event, where kids search downtown Narberth high and low for thirteen of the witchiest witches around. They collect treats along the way, and then return to the start to collect a Halloween prize. Costumes are optional, but all hunters should bring a bag for treats. The hunt goes until 4 pm or until prizes are gone. 

This is the poster from 2013:

These were the prizes in 2013. Most coveted are the Witches of Narberth limited-edition souvenir-sized tins of Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty.  These custom tin hold spooky Halloween-colored putty that will be the envy of all the local schoolyards this Halloween.  Prizes for our youngest scavengers include Halloween mini-rubber-duckies and plush Halloween ghosts.
