Is the Day Spa event coming Nov. 4 also a rerun? Of the event which first ran in 2016?
I fully expect it to be a rerun. It's a little curious they are calling it a live event, though. I'm not sure if the people who put the list together know that it was originally a community event or if the devs have "repackaged" the prizes to turn it into a live event. Once we know for sure I'll either sticky the original topic or create a new one.

The prizes in this new live event are the ones originally offered as personal prizes only, the original community prizes are not a part of it. So we don't get the rectangular bathroom mats or the wearable towels. I was looking forward to finally completing my spa collection, and I am seriously disappointed.

In my game all prizes were unlocked and all working stations already useable. I won the spa with a mystery box previously so that could be the reason my progressbar is already filled to the end. This means in my case there are no constructor coins to be won by progressing. At least the daily goals do not require to buy or unlock prizes.

It appears in the Sauna Pack we got two new floors, one mossy one with square tiles and a long dark grey tile.

Mine also had all the prizes unlocked except the last three which are two sets of constructo coins and the sp prize. I haven't unlocked the spa house yet.

Those aren't new. They've always been a part of the Sauna Pack.

It's extremely frustrating that they left out a whole set of prizes. The requirements for all the prizes if you don't have anything to begin with are some of the highest for any live event. They could have bundled the prizes without increasing the requirements and it would have felt more balanced.

Check your task manager. It should be showing there. You have to tap on it to get the option to play the event.

Thanks! I don’t know why I didn’t get a pop-up to notify me. :D
