While I think this is a good decision and something I figured would ultimately happen, it still sucks for all those who have been working on the event. Now let's hope Christmas still happens at the parks.


Christmas is easier since a lot of it is just the decorations and atmosphere. The shows and parades may not happen or be modified, but I feel like it'll be easier to at least get the festive atmosphere.

I would imagine the parks will still put up some Fall/Halloween decorations and play Monster Mash over the in park music system this October even though they can't do the full HHN/Halloweekend/Haunt/Not So Scary experience.
