You Thought Piñata Candy Was Bad, Latino Halloween Candy Takes the Cake

Latinos have no shame when it comes to throwing candy in a Halloween bag. They give away anything…

If they have an orange tree, that’s what they’re dropping in the bag.

Last time I checked, only elephants and drunk tíos take them. But the worst is when you crack them open and there’s nothing inside.

They’re always stale and least they could do is get us the brand named ones.

Literally the worst candy to get in the bag. They always break.

No kid ever liked getting these. They’re all adult flavor.

You never know where they bought them, but they’re always around your house and probably from four Halloweens ago.

There’s A ‘Haunted Drive-Thru’ Experience Coming To Save Halloween And It Looks Terrifying

I don’t care if it’s barely August. It’s never too soon to start talking about Halloween.

The year 2020 has already taken so much from us, I won’t let it take Halloween too. And thanks to come very creative, socially-distanced supporting Halloween fans, it looks like we won’t have to say goodbye to the best holiday of the year after all.

Orlando is getting a drive-thru haunted experience and I really want to go.

If you were worried that COVID-19 would spell the end of haunted attractions in 2020, you’d best buckle up. The brave and the squeamish alike are invited to travel The Haunted Road this fall, a drive-thru Halloween experience in Central Florida that offers a socially distant alternative to the traditional haunted house.

The Haunted Road promises a fully immersive horror experience replete with monsters and gore galore — which should ring like music to your ears if going to haunts is your Halloween tradition of choice. The difference here is that you’ll experience the world of nightmarish scenery and gruesome creatures entirely from the comfort of your vehicle. So, kind of like a haunted hayride, but Coronavirus safe.

At the heart of the experience is an original take on the story of Rapunzel. On The Haunted Road, Rapunzel “journeys into a world of disarray, faces bloodcurdling creatures — and hundreds of shocking scares.” There will also be a more family-friendly daytime version of the event on weekdays.

OK, a huge thank you to whomever thought up this genius idea.

The idea for The Haunted Road was borne from the idea of creating an original haunted attraction that adheres to safe social distancing measures.

Most haunted attractions place visitors into smaller spaces and encourage performers to get up close and personal to secure the scare. But with the coronavirus pandemic raging on, that in-your-face approach is largely unfeasible and could lead most haunts to remain closed for the 2020 season. And that’s where The Haunted Road comes riding in like a headless horseman poised to save Halloween.

“With the arts and entertainment industry at a standstill, and an increasing need to find new, safe outdoor entertainment, we knew it was the perfect time to develop a unique Halloween experience so everyone can enjoy a dose of horror this upcoming Halloween season, from the comfort of their car,” said Jessica Mariko, executive producer and creative principal, The Haunted Road.

Halloween Horror Nights Canceled For The First Time In 30 Years Thanks To Covid

Things That Matter

Halloween Horror Nights Canceled For The First Time In 30 Years Thanks To Covid

Halloween Horror Nights, a Universal Studios staple, is not happening this year and there is only one thing to blame: Covid. The virus, which is still spread wildly in the U.S., has forced so many things to be canceled. People are not happy with the decision.

For the first time in 30 years, Halloween Horror Nights is not happening.

Halloween Horror Nights is one of the biggest events of the year at Universal Studios in Florida and California. The sudden (and not surprising) cancelation is a devastating announcement for the fans of spooky culture.

Honestly, people are ready to throw their tantrums over this.

Florida and California, home to both Universal Studios, are dealing with major Covid outbreaks. California had an explosion of Covid cases that forced the state to reverse some of its rapid reopenings. Florida is another state dealing with a major Covid outbreak that has forced some places to reclose as Disney pushes forward with the reopening.

There’s a lot of pain out there right now.

It really is another blow in a very devastating year. So many people hoped that Halloween would still happen yet the patchwork response we’ve had against the virus isn’t helping. The loss of a Halloween tradition is just too painful right now but we will be alright.

All we can do now is wait “patiently” for Halloween 2021…

All it took was wearing masks and social distancing to avoid this yet, here we are. Remember to take care of yourself, your health, and your community. This means wearing masks and social distancing to protect each other.
