If you happen to be in Washington, D.C. this weekend for Halloween festivities, then you may want to stay clear of the National Mall — or join in! On Saturday, visitors to the area will be forced to take a side between fear and sanity at the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear, led by Jon Stewart of The Daily Show With Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert of The Colbert Report. So what will be going down at these political rallies?

The rally was announced in September and at first was planned as two separate competing rallies, until the satirical political duo decided to join forces.

According to TIME magazine, “the focus of the rally is the ugliness of political debate: the Hitler comparisons, the head-stomping, the conspiracy theories, the assumption that your opponent is also your enemy and must always be assumed to be acting in bad faith.”

More than 1,000 gatherings have been organized in 83 countries throughout the world in support.

Oprah Winfrey and Huffington Post co-founder and editor Arianna Huffington have endorsed the event.
