A planned Ku Klux Klan gathering in Gettysburg, Pa. was canceled due to the government shutdown, Philadelphia’s WCAU reported Tuesday.

A Maryland-based KKK group was approved to hold a rally on Saturday at Gettysburg National Military Park, according to WCAU. Park officials told the news station that the rally won’t happen because they revoked all permits for special events when the shutdown began Tuesday.

The effects of the shutdown are being felt at parks as far away as South Dakota, where Gov. Dennis Daugaard (R) offered state resources and personnel to help keep Mount Rushmore open. At the center of the shutdown in Washington, D.C., a group of visiting veterans stormed a World War II Memorial Tuesday when they found it was closed.
