Although it will be done differently, de Blasio said New Yorkers -- especially the young ones -- deserve it after all they've been through.
"It is one of the most joyous nights of the year," he said. "Halloween will be safe in New York City."
The mayor also provided some tips on how to have a safe and fun Halloween:
- Stay outdoors: Trick-or-treating should be done outdoors; not in apartment buildings
- Giving Treats: Place in a bin instead of handed out
- Back Up: Step back 6 feet after ringing doorbell
- Masks: Costume masks not effective at stopping COVID-19; wear face covering over costume mask
- Hand sanitizer: Bring and use often
- Avoid indoor Halloween parties, haunted houses and large groups
