There will be a children’s costume contest at 2 p.m. at the Plaza. Children can visit the downtown businesses and do some trick-or-treating, as well.

Around the corner, the Paramount Theatre is hosting a March of Dimes fundraiser with a costume contest and raffle from 3 to 6 p.m., when it will also air the movie “Beetlejuice.” Tickets are $2 or $1 for those 12 and younger.
