Parents, kids, and pets – some in costume – lined the road to watch the Witches dance for a good cause. This year, their chosen charity was Hope Clinic – a Pamlico County nonprofit that helps the medically needy or underinsured.

Fay Bond, one of Oriental’s oldest residents and dancing witch, presided over the event from her witches’ chair.
