REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. -- The 26th annual Sea Witch Halloween and Fiddler's Festival kicked off day two with a costume parade Saturday morning.

Thousands of people lined Rehoboth Avenue for front row seats to the Sea Witch parade, with some traveling hundreds of miles just to see the local event.

A Camp Hill, Pa. father who attended the parade in an inflatable baby costume with his daughter, said this year was about letting loose.

"I very rarely dress up," said Alfred Kamps. "But I had to get some socks at Kmart yesterday and I saw this costume and I just bought it."

Sea Witch has a special meaning for many of those who celebrate at the festival every year.

"I don't think we have anything this big where we are," said Kelly Ament who attended the festival with her husband Josh and their infant daughter.

"We have Hundred Acres Manor, which is one of the top-rated Halloween events nationwide. But I don't think we have this," sais Josh Ament.

For some festival-goers, including Patty McCool who owns a home in Rehoboth, coming to Sea Witch is an annual tradition.

"I love parades. I'm a total parade junkie and I think it's more fun [when] we bring people that have kids, and just the excitement of getting dressed up and seeing everything. We just really enjoy it," said McCool.

The Sea Witch Halloween and Fiddler's Festival runs through Sunday Oct. 25 at the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand.
