The City of Stillwater has announced on their Facebook page the cancellation of local events from now until November due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2020 events cancelled are as follows:
- Mummy and Son Dance
- Downtown Halloween Festival
- Breakfast with Santa
“We are extremely disappointed that we must cancel these events. This was a difficult decision, but it was made with the public’s safety in mind,” Community Resources Manager Barbara Bliss said. “Though the Halloween festival is outdoors, it typically draws crowds of over 3,000, making physical distancing difficult. Because the Mummy and Son Dance and Breakfast with Santa are both indoors, it would be a challenge to prevent close contact—especially because Santa stops in Stillwater to take pictures and eat breakfast with all the children.”
The City of Stillwater also said on their Facebook page that they appreciate its residents patience and understanding as it works to mitigate community risk.
