City Council approved Trick or Treat in Milford for October 31

Milford City Council voted to approve Trick or Treat on Tuesday, October 31. The event will take place between the hours of 6 and 8 PM. Based on the City Charter, council must approve the date that Trick or Treat may take place.

“Whereas the children of Milford are free to enjoy the fun and festivity associated with the observance of the Halloween Trick-or-Treat custom of traveling with friends and family, going door-to-door in their neighborhoods, displaying their costumes and gathering treats,” the resolution read. “Parents are urged to join in the festivities by accompanying their children throughout their journeys in celebrating Halloween Trick-or-Treat.”

Residents are asked to indicate their willingness to participate by keeping a porch or exterior light on so that children are aware who will be handing out treats. A darkened porch or no outside light should indicate the residents are not participating.

“Costumed celebrants will be permitted to engage in Trick-or-Treat,” the resolution read. “All celebrants are to refrain from committing acts of vandalism or destruction and motorists are asked to be ever watchful of our youngsters making these annual rounds.”

No age limit was placed on children who may participate in Trick-or-Treat in Milford. The resolution passed with a vote of 6 to 0 as Councilwoman Nirmala Samaroo was not in attendance at the meeting.
