Forget ghosts, take a walk with some witches this Halloween

Around this time last year, 25 or so witches took on the bars of downtown Sandusky, and this year they are hoping for more to come join the fun.

On Halloween, October 31 Michelle Herold from James A. Bertsch Jeweler is hosting the second annual Witches Walk. Both men and women are invited, though the event is not for those under the age of 21.

No registration is required, participants should simply meet at James A. Bertsch Jeweler, located at 101 West Market Street in Sandusky, at 5:30 p.m. and then proceed for the walk. Come dressed up and ready to listen to tales of haunted Sandusky by Donna Bretz while you participate in the bar crawl.

Stops include The State Theatre, Water Street Bar & Grill, Daly’s Pub, Cabbana Jacks, J Bistro and the Crowbar. Each stop will be for 20-30 minutes.

“I have a whistle that I blow when it’s time to move on,” said Herold, coordinator of the walk. It’s all in fun though, you can always stay behind to have a full meal or more drinks if desired and meet up with the group later.

Each stop will be offering discount adult beverages and snacks for the participating witches. “The local bars make us up fun drinks such as ‘Witch’s Brew’ at the State Theatre, ‘Pumpkin Martinis’ at West Water and ‘Poison Apple’ at J. Bistro’s. We have a great time,” said Herold.

Prizes will be given throughout the night for the best dressed witch, most glamorous witch and the wicked witch. “We raise our hands and vote on who gets the prize,” Herold said.

During the evening from 5-8 p.m. Jarrod Walters, a psychic medium, will be reading tarot cards at 103 West Market Street, $15 for 20 minutes.

After the walk, the group will dance the night away at the final stop, the Crow Bar.

“It’s an excuse to get dressed up and just have fun. It’s a great opportunity to meet new people in a unique way, all while supporting downtown businesses” said Herold.
