2022 Witch Way to Main Street Provides Quality Family Fun For All Ages!

The Natchitoches Events Center played host to well over 1,000 young ghouls, superheroes and costumed figures of every description and their families as the Natchitoches Main Street Program held its Witch Way to Main Street Halloween program Saturday, October 29 in conjunction with the Farmers’ Market. A number of booths staffed by various community businesses and organizations manned tables where the youngsters could try their hand at games and rake in lots of sweet loot.

NCHS’ 4-H was on hand passing out healthy treats and showing how to make them. The Chiefs were joined by a 4-H member from St. Thomas Moore in Lafayette. Witch Way to Main Street featured an eclectic blend of entertainment. Katrice Lacour, a staple of the Natchitoches music scene, brought his high energy fun to the crowd. He was followed by the Thistle Dancers who performed several traditional Scottish dances accompanied by bagpipe and drum. The event’s entertainment concluded with none other than Natchitoches’ own Indigo Fusion Belly Dance Troupe who performed their “Witches’ Dance”, a perennial crowd favorite.

The popular event, started in 2000, is a long-standing community tradition that provides families a safe place for their little ones to have fun and trick or treat. This event is one of the many things that make life in our community so special. More than a few of the parents of the little ones dressed up tonight were themselves trick or treaters at an earlier Witch Way to Main Street event.
