The witches of 49 Franklin are ready to show how to celebrate the season with lots of laughs and Halloween fun.

“Witches” is a fun, interactive event for the young and young at heart. Meet the witches as they assist with the event by providing face painting, crafts, dances, trick-or-treating and helping out with local magician Scot Grassette. He has some new tricks up his sleeve, as he weaves interaction from the audience with help from unforgettable Wacky Wanda in a delightfully tailored magic show suited for the season. Costumes are encouraged.

Cindy Grassette returns as Wacky Wanda who has become smitten with the local magician. Will she be able to win him over? Will he fall under her spell? Will he be able to nicely avoid her advances?
