The Animal Crossing New Horizons Halloween Event is just around the corner. Here's what you can expect to see Halloween night and how you can prepare.

Animal Crossing Halloween Event: What to Expect

First, you're going to want to stock up on candy. You can buy one piece each day from Timmy and Tommy for the whole month. During the Halloween celebration itself, you'll give your villagers candy to prevent them from pulling pranks on you, a role they are taking over from Jack. They will also give you special spooky furniture items and DIYs only available the night of, including the Spooky Garland DIY, Spooky Table Setting DIY, Spooky Rug, Spooky Flooring and Spooky Wall. The DIY recipes use pumpkins like the other spooky recipes you may have been finding this month. There is also a chance that they will give you a lollipop instead.

This is where Jack comes in. You can give the Czar of Halloween Lollipops in exchange for two exclusive DIY recipes: the Spooky Carriage DIY, which is a pumpkin carriage perfect for a Fairytale themed Island, and the Pumpkin Wand in case you want to change into your costume with a little extra flare. The event starts after 5 p.m. on Oct 31.
