Dozens of community members put on their best spooky costumes for the annual Witches Paddle in Morro Bay on Friday afternoon.

Organized by Paddle SLO, the event started in 2013.

It encourages local witches and warlocks to trade their broomsticks for paddleboards and kayaks.

"We really don't have a destination, we just enjoy the journey, we just have fun laughing a lot, cackling a lot," said Angela Pericic.

This year, the event collected donations for the South Bay Women's Network, which raises funds for Cuesta College female re-entry student scholarships.
