Milford’s Trunk or Treat brought crowds downtown Friday evening.


Walnut Street was abuzz with kids and adults in costume, as the annual Trunk or Treat took place in Milford on Friday.

Trunk or Treat invites Milford residents park their cars and hand out sweet treats to trick-or-treaters. Several residents took the event seriously, decking out vehicles in festive Halloween decor and in full costume.

The Messick family was one of many with kids dressed in costume and holding buckets full of candy, going car to car for a trick-or-treat.

“So many different costumes,” they said as two younger kids came up to their vehicle for a treat. “It’s just a fun and safe way for us to celebrate Halloween.”

The annual Trunk or Treat event is held in downtown Milford prior to Halloween. Downtown Milford Inc. and local businesses put the annual event together to provide a safe environment for trick or treaters and parents. 

It was also the first time since the pandemic that the event took place. COVID-19 canceled last year’s event, so parents and kids were eager to get out at this year’s event.

 The Carlisle Fire Department and Auxiliary is holding its annual Trunk or Treat at 615 NW Front St. on Halloween night from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
