Halloween 2020 is nearly here, which means it's time to get festive. Does the spooky season evict a spirit in you to abandon your homebody ways? Well, since Halloween falls on a Saturday this year, you'll be ready to explore events all weekend long. Instead of breaking out your sewing kit, New York's greatest Halloween stores have plenty of options to choose from. Then, you know the drill: Before heading out for fun, grab a meal for sustenance at one of NYC's best new restaurants, top it off with killer cocktails and head to any of these happenings for a little (spooky) excitement back in your life.

Bette Midler is reuniting with her witchy sisters, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy, for the one-night-only documentary-style show, "In Search of The Sanderson Sisters, A Hocus Pocus Hulaween Takeover," which will be hosted by "Elvira, Mistress of the Dark," who will welcome co-stars Thora Birch, Omri Katz and Doug Jones and special guests, Glenn Close, Billy Crystal, Samantha Diaz, Billy Eichner, Todrick Hall, Jennifer Hudson, Anjelah Johnson-Reyes, Adam Lambert, Alex Moffat, Martin Short, Sarah Silverman, John Stamos, Meryl Streep, Sophie von Haselberg, and other surprise guests. Make sure to reserve your spot for the one-hour event (your link will be emailed to you in advance). Participants are encouraged to purchase spooky Hocus Pocus-inspired artisan-made "bobbles, gewgaws and devilishly delicious treats" which will be delivered in time for the event. All proceeds benefit the New York Restoration Project.
