Cassidy McLellan- Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- Due to COVID-19 and the changes it brought, Halloween will look a little different this year.
One of the biggest changes is the official cancellation of “Halloween Horror Nights” at Universal Orlando Resort.
Even with such holiday favorites cancelled, there are still a wide variety of enjoyable Halloween activities that can be done this year.
For instance, Busch Gardens “Howl-O-Scream” will still be held this year with a few modifications. The event will consist of 10 open-air scare zones rather than the usual haunted houses seen the past years.
Sophomore Kaitlyn Case said, “My friends and I usually go to Halloween Horror Nights but as it is cancelled, we are planning to go to Howl-O-Scream. I used to go to Howl-O-Scream with my family when I was younger so it will be nice to go again and see the changes.”
Some Mustangs are planning to continue Halloween fun at home with a small group of socially distanced friends.
Sophomore Gabby Traver explained, “As we cannot go to a Halloween party this year, my friends and I have decided we will have a small get together where we will watch scary movies.”
