The annual Witches Escape is a magical Halloween themed adventure throughout Downtown Eureka Springs that combines the action of a scavenger hunt with the thrill of a historical mystery. Event participants are invited to dress in witchy garb and compete in cackling and costume contests, learn a special witches dance, and play Witches Shopping Bingo for a chance to win some amazing prizes from local shops and crafts people. This year’s event has been expanded into two days (Friday Oct 6 and Saturday Oct 7), with unique experiences planned for each day. All witches and wizards ages 18 and up are invited to attend the Witches Escape. The event is a benefit for the Eureka Springs Historical Museum.
