Nothing too deep from the sound of it, but let's hope it keeps the chitlins and their parents busy throughout the day so they're too tired to stay for HoS proper.

For some reason, when I saw 'count,' I was thinking Count Vladtastic.

Busch Gardens released more info regarding this event today.

In addition to the show, theirs also going to be trick or treating and a parade. Sounds a whole lot like Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween. However, if it's not to make the kids happy and leave the park prior to HOS, I'm all for it.

Here is the press release, as well (since BGWScream beat me to it!):

BGW Wrote:CELEBRATE SILLY, NOT-TOO-SPOOKY FUN AT THE COUNT’S SPOOKTACULAR

WILLIAMSBURG, Virginia (Sept. 20, 2017) – Come celebrate silly, not-too-spooky, family fun this fall at Busch Gardens® Williamsburg.

Every weekend in October, children 9 and younger are encouraged to come dressed in their best Halloween costume to enjoy Halloween shows, dancing and playing with their favorite Sesame Street® friends at The Count’s Spooktacular. This can’t-miss event includes an all-new show, Count’s Countdown to Halloween, dance parties and parading with friendly, furry monsters through the park to end the day for families before the serious haunts and scares of Howl-O-Scream begin in the evening.

Kid-friendly rides, family activities and trick-or-treating will be offered around the park for our littlest guests to celebrate the fall season. Halloween decorations will be set up during the day, but the scare squad, dim lighting and fog will not start until 6 p.m.

Parents, if your child’s costume has a mask or prop, we ask for you to kindly leave those at home. Smiling faces always look better in family photos. We offer plenty of options to jazz up your child’s costume with face paint, glow items, and more at the park. Guests can visit one of our face-painting booths to transform into a favorite Halloween character.

The daytime event runs 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, Oct. 7 through Oct. 29, and is included in park admission. Save 50% with a special kids’ ticket available to use in October. For more information, visit https://seaworldparks.com/en/buschgarden...ooktacular .

With the park allowing kids to dress up, give out "Halloween treats" and the parade, should be a good draw. It's what they do at Sea World and it works there; of course the down side would be the larger crowds during the day.
