2019 SEA WITCH® Festival Winners

  • 2019 Sea Witch® Hunt - For only the second time in 30 years, we've stumped the Sea Witch® Hunt hunters, two hunters got to Convention Hall, but they did not guess the right location where the Sea Witch® was hidden there. Several hunters correctly connected that a horse was a major clue and that a eye was a major clue. So where was she?? In the lobby at Convention Hall right behind the Chamber of Commerce Festival Information Table In the eye of the horse painting on the wall. CLICK HERE to see the full list of clues and meanings.
