Trick-or-treat is a well-known Halloween tradition in the United Stated and other countries where kids dress up in costumes and go from house to house asking for treats - usually candies. If the kid doesn't receive a treat then he/she will perform a trick (mischief) on the owner of the house.

Today, Americans spend approximately $6 billion annually ($2.6 billion spent on candy) on Halloween making it the nation’s second largest commercial holiday after Christmas.

The hardest part when celebrating Halloween in New York is to decide what to do. No matter your age or scare tolerance the City has many things going on, not just on the day itself, but throughout October.

Though many events and activities have been cancelled or altered this year due to COVID-19 you still have hundreds of options to select from and have a blast.

Wishing you a spooky good October folks!!!
