For the 8th year in a row the Walnut Beach Witch will appear on Halloween. The event, hosted by the Walnut Beach Business Association, begins at 5 p.m. near the corner of Naugatuck Avenue and Broadway.

The Walnut Beach Creamery will be giving away ice cream to anyone who comes in costume while supplies last. A DJ, face painter and fortune teller will be there between 5 and 7 p.m. At 6 p.m. the Walnut Beach Witch appears in the doorway of the Walnut Beach Creamery to lead a spooky parade around the block with local businesses giving away candy.

Bring a bell to scare away the bad spirits. Have your picture taken with the Walnut Beach Witch. The event is free. For more information visit the Walnut Beach Business Association facebook or walnutbeachcreamery.com or call 203-878-7738.
