From the Smithsonian Office of Public Affairs:

“We made the decision not to host Zoo’s traditional Halloween or ZooLights events because we did not feel we could do them good for several reasons and within our COVID security parameters. Our first priority is the safety and well-being of our visitors, staff and animals. We all feel hope that 2022 will bring new opportunities. ”

From an email:
