Halloween comes downtown in broad daylight on Oct. 25 as Martinez hosts its annual Spooktacular, with trick-or-treating at businesses throughout the downtown area and on Main Street between Starbucks and the Bank of America. All attending families are welcome to free treat bags and certificates for free photographs to be taken on Halloween itself. Pumpkin-painting costs $2 (includes pumpkin). 2 p.m.
