Get your spook on! Celebrate Halloween on the TODAY plaza

The scariest night of the year is nearly here! Though there's no need to wait until Halloween evening to celebrate — we're starting first thing Thursday morning.

Come down to the plaza to join Matt, Savannah and the rest of the TODAY family in costume on Oct. 31 for our annual Halloween celebration.

Dress to impress in your finest faux ensembles! There will be a costume contest, special events and ghoulish surprises. Whether you're on the plaza or celebrating from home, use the hashtag #HalloweenTODAY to share in on the fun.

While last year's event was canceled due to Superstorm Sandy, TODAY goes all out every Halloween. Check out past years' plaza extravaganzas:
