Annual Witch Dance moves downtown this Halloween – Cache Valley Daily


Logan’s annual Witches Dance will move downtown this year to become the highlight of the Downtown Logan Hocus Pocus Witches Dance and Halloween Festival on October 30.

LOGAN – The annual Cache Valley Halloween Witch Dance takes place in downtown Logan.

This local tradition will now be part of the Logan Hocus Pocus Witches Downtown Dance and Halloween Festival on Saturday, October 30, according to spooky spokesperson Kat Webb.

The witch dance, with dozens of local women dressed as high fashion witches, normally took place in the residential areas of West Center Street. Now, with the support of Logan City officials, this event is moving a few blocks east to become the culmination of a day of Halloween celebration on Center Street in downtown.

“We’re really excited to be a part of Logan Hocus Pocus Witches Downtown Halloween and Dance Festival,” says Webb. “Logan City officials have been phenomenal with their support. We couldn’t have seen our vision come true without Mayor Holly Daines and the help of Debbie Harvey, Dan Blakely and Russ Akina of the Logan Parks and Recreation Department. So many other people are also contributing.

The Downtown Logan Hocus Pocus Witches Dance and Halloween Festival will be held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Center Street between Main Street and 100 Street West.

The event will actually kick off earlier today with a Halloween Treat Walk for kids downtown from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The official festival events will kick off with a costume contest at 4 p.m.

Local band The Afu Fighters will perform live music from 4.30 p.m. to 6.30 p.m.

Registration for a Bring Your Own Decorated Pumpkin contest will begin at 5:00 p.m. and judging will follow at 5:30 p.m.

Brightly dressed local witches will participate in the Logan Hocus Pocus Witch Dance at 6.30pm, 7pm and 7.30pm

Finally, the Utah Theater will feature Halloween-themed movies with start times at 7 p.m., 9:30 p.m. and midnight.

Logan Hocus Pocus was trained to help keep Halloween magic alive in the Trunk-or-Treat era», Underlines Webb. “It’s a great way to get out and enjoy the community, while the kids experience Halloween, not just the parking lots and gyms. “

Webb adds that the tradition of witch dancing began here several years ago after local women saw a viral video of a similar event taking place in Germany.

“Downtown Logan has always had a lively atmosphere, especially over the past few years with the revitalization project underway,” observes Webb. “We were hoping to do something like this last year, but we decided to take a year off due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Now that vaccines are readily available, we are excited to return to our annual tradition, but with a new twist! “
