The public is invited to join the free Tricks & Treats Pumpkin Decorating Contest, sponsored by local organization Stand 4 One. To request a pumpkin, email firstname.lastname@example.org with "pumpkin pickup" as the subject line.

The evening before Halloween, First United Methodist Church will host its fourth annual Halloween Trick or Trunk event in the church parking lot, located at 925 North F. St.
The drive-through event, beginning at 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 30, will allow children in vehicles to collect prepackaged goodie bags and candy from volunteers who will don masks and gloves as mandated by Santa Barbara County Health Department.
Dressed up in costumes on Halloween night, children then will be invited to load up on more fun and candy at the Tricks & Treats youth event, presented by Stand 4 One and sponsored by the Roots Team, The Greenhouse and Jim Mosby.
