No more Halloween with the Springsteens!

One of the coolest things in my town is Bruce Springsteen's set-up outside his home.  He always does the most elaborate Halloween decorations (kind of like the Haunted Mansion at Disney World) He gives all the children massive amounts of candy and all the ladies are giddy at the thought of a face to face with The Boss.  

There are always police and security guards present to maintain order and to keep people at a safe distance from the Springsteen home.  

As you know, all good things come to an end.  The following was posted on Springsteen's official web page.

HALLOWEEN

To our friends and neighbors:

So as not to inconvenience you this Halloween, due to "catastrophic success" (read:  too many visitors for the neighborhood to handle) and concern for the safety of kids and parents!  We won't be having our usual Halloween display this year in Rumson.

We wish everyone a safe and Happy Halloween!

Thanks, 

Bruce and Patti

BUMMER.  Caffeine Court, along with Bruce and Patti wishes you a very spooky Halloween!!! Try not to eat too many Snickers Bars!!

Too bad. How far does he live from you? Would he hang out at the gate?

Mrs.D said...

What a bummer! That is awesome that they did that at all.

Mrs. K said...

That stinks! I would've drove an hour to go trick or treating at his house if he would sing to me.

Dang! I think I remember you posting about this last year. What a let down!

It's not just us Moms. My daughter was really bummed when Bruce's son chose Boston college over Lafayette as she and her friends were looking forward to Bruce sightings on campus. Little did she know she could have taken a ride down the parkway every Halloween, until now!

And I was contemplating driving down there this year, too. Oh well.

I heard that on the news (and by news I mean HS news with Robin!) - what a bummer!

Belle (from Life of a...) said...

That's so sad! He must have really enjoyed doing all of that or he wouldn't have gone to all of the effort. I bet he is sad also.

Mrs.D said...

Find out who complained and then egg their house. ;-)

How neat that they used to do that. I'm sorry to hear they don't anymore, but at least they're being considerate, right?
