What's a Witch Walk?
October 20, 2018 – Gather your brood to dress up or just come for the great witch watching then EAT, DRINK, and SHOP downtown Murphys while you revel in wonderfully wicked TREATS, DISCOUNTS, PRIZES, and make new friends too!
Participating local businesses will be giving out raffle tickets for each $5 you spend – you then drop those into magical cauldrons to win fabulous gift baskets.
If you're looking particularly bewitching you might be selected as one of The Lucky 13 Witches to be voted on by the crowd for best costume! Prizes for the top 3 witches range from $25 - $100 value!
Either way cap off this magical day with spirited cocktails and danceable tunes by Leilani and The Distractions!

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to wear a witchy costume to take part in the fun?
We strongly encourage you to fly in dressed to put a spell on downtown Murphys! Or come as you are and enjoy and the fun and fabulous witch watching!
Are men and kids welcome?
Absolutely! Warlocks, witchlettes, and little warlocks are more than welcome to tag along.
Do witches have to be present at 8:15pm to win the prize basket raffle?
No, the signup sheet will ask for emails and phone numbers. Just make sure you write very clearly :)
Do the pre-qualified Lucky 13 witches have to be present to win the costume contest?
Yep! Actually each qualifying witch that wants to have the crowd vote on their costume needs to be at The Lucky Penny at 8pm to be prepped backstage. To ensure things run smoothly if you don’t show up by 8pm, you’ll unfortunately be disqualified.
