Milford Trick or Treat Wednesday, Oct. 31

Halloween Trick or Treat Night will be officially observed in the City of Milford on Wednesday,  October 31, 2012 for youngsters. Only celebrants of 12 years and under will be permitted to engage in Trick or Treat between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Residents are requested to indicate their willingness to welcome children by keeping their porch or exterior lights on and that youngsters call only on homes so lighted. City officials ask that all celebrants are requested to refrain from committing acts of vandalism or destruction.
