The most exciting part of this event occurs on October 31, the day of Halloween. Jack, the Halloween Czar, will arrive on your island to kick off the celebrations. Residents on your island will gather at the Plaza adorned in Halloween decorations. New Horizons keeps the tradition of trick or treating alive with this event.

At the Plaza, you can give Jack candy in exchange for themed in-game recipes and items such as a replica of Jack’s costume, a Spooky Wand, and a Spooky Carriage. Furthermore, you should also give some candy to the residents gathered at the Plaza to avoid getting pranked by them.
