Paddle-boarding witches and warlocks celebrate October full moon South Florida style – WSVN 7News | Miami News, Weather, Sports

MARATHON, FLA. (WSVN) – A group of costumed witches and warlocks celebrated the October full moon in the most Florida-way possible: paddle-boarding.

Nearly two dozen paddle-boarders participated in the Full Moon Witches’ Paddle late Sunday afternoon off Marathon.

The event began at the Crane Point Museum & Nature Center and ended as the magic-users paddled along the shoreline into the sunset.

The witches’ paddle was conjured up by Karen Thurman, a longtime Florida Keys resident, who then proposed the idea to friends on Facebook.
