PARK CITY, Utah. — It’s no secret that the Covid-19 pandemic has cancelled plans and traditions across the globe. Among that growing list is Park City’s annual “Howl-O-Ween”. Any other year, residents from all over the county would be gearing up to watch local dogs in costume parade up and down Historic Park City’s Main Street, but this annual tradition will be broken, with hopes set on celebrating again in 2021.
A statement released on Oct. 26, 2020 by the City Government of Park City on their Facebook Page reads:
“With the health and safety of the community in mind, Historic Park City’s Howl-O-Ween on Main Street event has been cancelled this year. We look forward to celebrating one of Park City’s favorite traditions next year. As you celebrate Halloween on your own, please remember to practice COVID safety measures. Stay spooky and stay healthy, Park City.”
The Summit County Health Department adopted a similar tone of safety when they released these precautions and low-risk options for celebrating Halloween this year.
