On Monday, September 13, Milford City Council approved a resolution to hold Trick or Treat on Sunday, October 31. The resolution stated that “the children of Milford are free to enjoy the fun and festivity associated with the observance of Halloween Trick or Treat custom of traveling with friends and family, going door-to-door in their neighborhoods, displaying their costume and gathering treats.”
Parents are urged to join children throughout the town and residents are asked to indicate their willingness to welcome children by keeping their porch or exterior lights on. Children should only go to homes with exterior or porch lights illuminated.
Trick or Treat is observed from 5 PM until 7 PM. Children should be in costume and are asked not to engage in vandalism or destruction. Motorists should be watchful that evening as young people make the rounds. Mayor Archie Campbell asked if, because Trick or Treat is outside, would masks be required.
“We will follow whatever guidelines are put forth by the CDC,” City Manager Mark Whitfield said. “We are also getting guidance from the Governor’s office as the date gets closer.”
Mayor Campbell commented that this event was needed.
“I think the community is looking forward to this,” Mayor Campbell said. “Kids have been cooped up for too long. I think they are really looking forward to the Halloween things.”
