To The Daily Sun,
Though I've only lived in Laconia for 10 years, I've always heard from my friends about Funspot's Halloween parties and how fun they were. I was finally able to go last year after Pumpkin Fest and even hung out with a couple of my friends there, playing the video games, and drinking cider, while being able to dress up in my costume. It was nice having a warm place to hang out after work and not feel silly for wearing a costume and being like a kid at Christmas again.
I was quite looking forward to going to their party again this year and taking my boyfriend with me since he hadn't been there in years.
I was disappointed when they announced they weren't having it this year. Initially I believed it was because of the clown incidents until I found out it was because of Pumpkin Fest. Since I knew I wouldn't be able to make the Mount Washington trip, I was looking forward to Funspot.
It saddens me to know they would cancel a decades-old tradition over a little competition. I would've thought they would've welcomed it. Especially if the Pumpkin Fest days are rainy or cold, and people just want to hang out indoors. So from one who enjoys Halloween fun to one who supplies it, I wish Funspot would change its mind.
