A whimsical bike ride down the historic Main Street of Minden, LA, benefitting the community and local charities.
The Witches Ride has its origins in Seaside, FL, over 30 years ago and has since gained popularity across the southeast. Following the footsteps of neighboring towns, Pearls of Purpose saw the opportunity to bring this enchanting experience to Minden. The ride, taking place on Thursday, October 19 in downtown Minden, will feature women (ages 18 and up) from across north Louisiana donning their spookiest and most festive attire. Participants are invited to join the parade, while families, including spouses and children, can join as parade watchers or partake in the festivities at the block party.
The block party, to be held immediately after the Witches Ride, will be a vibrant celebration with complimentary bites, a cash bar, music, a kid’s area, and a screening of the classic film “Hocus Pocus.” Tickets for the ride and block party are priced at $45, while non-riders can attend the block party for $10. Children can enter the block party for free.
Make your trip a weekend escape and stay at one of Minden’s local hotels or bed & breakfast historic homes!
