Much to the delight of the internet, hundreds of people dressed as witches to attend a Halloween-themed paddleboarding event in Portland, Oregon, on Saturday. Bewitching photos and footage from the event went viral across social media.

According to the Oregonian, the second annual Stand-up Paddleboard Witch Paddle event invited people to dress up as a witch (or warlock) to participate in the fun. The paddlers traveled for six miles over the course of three hours in Portland’s Willamette Park.
