Halloween and Dia de los Muertos will be celebrated in style on Thursday in downtown Davis.

Children ages 10 and under in costume may walk the Treat Trail, rain or shine, from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Adding to the Halloween spirit, the Varsity Theatre, 616 Second St., will show “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” for free at 2, 2:35, 3:10 and 3:45 p.m.

While meandering around, keep an eye out for the Pamela Trokanski Dance Group, which will be performing Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” at various locations.

Too old to trick-or-treat? Check out the second annual El Dia de los Muertos celebration from 2 to 5:30 p.m. on the E Street Plaza in the 200 block of E Street. This traditional Mexican holiday honors the dead and the living.

A community altar will be built by Amar Azucena Cid and volunteer artists on the plaza stage. The community is invited to contribute offerings of photos, letters, flowers, food and mementos to the altar to celebrate those who have died.

From 2:30 to 3:45 p.m. Voice of the Wood performance artists will read stories: “That Terrible Halloween Night,” “The Little Old Lady Who Wasn’t Afraid of Anything” and “The Ghost of John.”

At 4 p.m. is the El Dia Procession, which begins at Tres Hermanas, Second and H streets, and ends at the plaza. The public is invited to dress in traditional costumes and makeup.

Still need a costume? Davis Musical Theatre Company will sell items from its costume inventory from 5 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at 607 Peña Drive. Numerous costumes pieces, hats, wigs and other items, many of which were used in theatrical productions, will be for sale. Costumes are available in all sizes. For more information, contact Mary Hickman at [email protected].

The Enchanted Cellar Costume Rentals, in 17 Wright Hall at UC Davis, offers Halloween rentals and costume inventory items for sale. Hours are 3 to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday. To view costumes or find more information, visit theatredance.ucdavis.edu or search Facebook: The Enchanted Cellar.
