Downtown Davis is the place to be over the next few days as the Davis Farmers Market celebrates its Fall Festival and Davis Downtown hosts a Halloween Treat Trail (trick-or-treating) and a Dia de los Muertos celebration on the E Street Plaza.

Highlights:

* Fall Festival: 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday in Central Park, Third and C streets, featuring a children’s costume parade at 11 a.m., free pumpkin patch, piglet petting zoo, pony rides, hands-on crafts and science activities, raptors from the California Raptor Center, Americana music by the Peter Franklin Band and Dilly Dally the Clown and her balloon wizardry.

* Central Park Gardens open house and sale, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday in Central Park, along B Street between Third and Fourth streets, featuring sales of fall vegetables, flowers, herbs, bulbs and natives, plus a seed-planting activity for kids and information tables staffed by Master Gardeners. Proceeds from the sale will benefit garden maintenance.

* Davis Downtown Treat Trail, 2-4:30 p.m. Wednesday in downtown Davis. Participating businesses (watch for the “Treat Trail” sign in their windows) will hand out goodies to costumed children age 10 and younger. Free screenings of “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” are planned at 2, 2:35, 3:10 and 3:45 p.m. at the Varsity Theatre, 616 Second St.

* Dia de los Muertos, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Wednesday on the E Street Plaza, in the 200 block of E Street downtown. A group of artists will build a Davis Community Altar on the plaza stage starting at 11 a.m.; community members are invited to contribute offerings like photos, letters, flowers, food and mementos to celebrate the lives of those now gone. Voice of the Wood will perform at 1 p.m. and an El Dia process will go from Tres Hermanas at Second and H streets to the plaza starting at 4:30 p.m. Entertainment continues on the plaza.
