Ogden, Utah - October 24th, 4:00 pm. Ogden City and Historic 25th Street Association will be hosting the annual Witchstock Festival at the Ogden City Amphitheater.
Witchstock includes a Witches Tea Party, the Zombie Crawl along Historic 25th Street and a Monster Bash dance party at the Amphitheater; costumed fun for all ages.
The evening begins with the Witches Tea Party. Pick through your witch-y wardrobe and come dressed in your most spellbinding attire. During the tea, participants will enjoy the Witches Fashion Show, live entertainment and performers from Voodoo Productions and spooky hobgoblin-ry throughout. Attendees even have a chance to join the fashion show and compete for the title “Best Witch.” Prizes will be awarded.
Tea party starts at 4 pm. Food and drinks will be served. In 2014, Witchstock partnered with the Zombie Crawl to combine two of Ogden’s favorite Halloween events into one great evening downtown. This year, the duo is back with an expanded Witchstock program and a Zombie Crawl that promises to be bigger and better than ever before.
Following the tea, the event opens to the public for the Zombie Crawl. Zombies will begin to gather on the Amphitheater Plaza around 6 pm. Join in the crawl and drag your zombie-¬self up and down 25th Street before returning to the Amphitheater at 8 pm for the “Monster Bash” dance party complete with a DJ spinning all the Halloween classics. Funky, off-the-wall artists and vendors will be hosting interactive booths and exhibits. Beer and wine will be available for purchase, ID required.
Tickets are required to attend the Witches Tea Party. The tea is hosted by The Junior League of Ogden and proceeds will benefit their newest project Jr. Junior League, a leadership program for girls ages 10¬-16. Tickets are available at www.historic25.com/witchstock-2015, $20 each.
