Look, there have been A LOT of absurd restrictions throughout the pandemic.

I mean, ABSURD.

But sometimes, restrictions are required for people who are completely unaware of the consequences of attending an event.

A lot of people think it's just an outdoor event with minimal risk... and that's their opinion. But the reality is that there is really no way to hold this event in a safe manner, given the sheer number of kids (thousands) that attend for the limited number of candy doors (75 or so counting the pavillions and other tables on the south end).

I think I'm a pretty level headed bloke when it comes to this stuff and I completely support the decision to cancel. Many parents would have no idea what they were getting into (as their kids attend for the first time) or hsve forgotten what chaos it is (since they haven't been in two years).

Seriously, I remember telling my wife one year that the event was a petri dish for disease... it's hard to comprehend the chaos and crowds under the Lawn room ceilings... it's nuts.

This isn't "only 50 ppl can attend a soccer game" when they could have 500 ppl there that can be more than 20 feet apart, types of head scratching restrictions. If you've never been, you have to trust me on that.
