Witches and warlocks of all kinds conjured up a good time last week for the first ever Witches Night Out.

The event, held on Oct. 14 and hosted by NW Magical Events, was a pub crawl and scavenger hunt that took folks all through downtown Enumclaw. There was also contests for best hat, best broom, and best overall costume, as well as a food drive.

“We ended up raising $367 and donated over 900 pounds of food, all for the Enumclaw Food bank,” organizers Evette Saenz and Elizabeth Morgan announced on Facebook after the event.

Close to 175 people showed up for the event, which was helped sponsored by Seeder’s Steak and Brew House, Ski Inn, Four Seasons, Cole Street Brewery, Kelly’s Mercantile, The Historical Mint, Black Hound Emporium, Nature’s Inventory and The Lee Restaurant

NW Magical Events formed about four months ago as a way to try and help the local food bank.

“We just kind of stumbled on this by accident,” Saenz said, adding that it turned into a very successful event.

Saenz and Morgan are hosting another event, Seeder’s Truck Harvest Food Drive, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Nov. 11 at Seeder’s.

The truck contest at the event is $15 per truck and per category. The categories are best off-road, most patriotic, best work truck, best pavement king/queen, and largest truck filled with non-perishable foods for the food bank.

There are also beard contests and redneck contests for $3 per person and per category.
