Witches of Narberth

Downtown Narberth, Forrest Ave & Haverford Ave, Narberth Map

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.
