Pantones CAFE’s adult ensemble performed at the 25th Annual Sea Witch Festival in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, on Saturday, October 26, 2014. This was the first appearance of a steel band at the festival and the audience really enjoyed their performance as there were numerous encores requests from the audience.
The Rehoboth Beach “Sea Witch Festival” is an annual three day event held over one weekend in October, and runs from Friday through Sunday . The event draws over 100,000 locals and visitors from nearby states. The Saturday Sea Witch Parade featured, clowns, wizards and witches, cartoon characters, sea creatures, historical costumed figures, and even costumed babies in strollers. For those who did not participate in the parade there were family events featuring all types of fun, games and activities for children and adults, with lots of food, arts and crafts and free entertainment throughout the day. Many of the band members stayed overnight to take in parts of the festival the following day. We certainly hope that we would be invited back next year.
