Have you bought your fun-sized Snickers yet? Halloween is right around the corner. Last week, I compiled a list of Halloween events perfect for the younger crowd. And today we sent our Going Out Guide With the Kids e-mail newsletter, packed with spooky ideas from the Going Out Gurus and great reads for parents from the rest of The Post. (Sign up to get it here!)

Get a taste of the newsletter with three of our top picks for this week:

Air and Scare (Saturday) Roving Star Wars characters are just one of the sights kids will see as they trick or treat around the Air and Space Museum Udvar-Hazy Center.

The Jimmies (Saturday) The Post’s own Moira McLaughlin interviewed Ashley Albert, the lead singer of the Jimmies, in advance of their Halloween show at National Geographic. The full review comes out Friday, but you can read a snippet here.

Little Boo (Sunday) Forget the campfire. Veteran storytellers from SpeakeasyDC can turn the DancePlace stage into a spooky space.
