‘Halloweekend’ a success in downtown Milford

The rain didn’t stop a weekend of Halloween fun around downtown Milford.
Kids donned their costumes and visited local businesses for some early trick-or-treating.
The city green also hosted a movie night and the annual Trick-or-Trot 5K over the weekend to raise money for the Beth-El Center.
It also served as a showcase for the city’s ScarecrowFest, which featured everything from zombified Barbies to Jimmy Buffett.
Organizers say the excitement - despite the rain - is indicative of the city’s community spirit.
“People like to support their community and their downtown, so they come out for all our events, and that’s why we put them on,” said Tracy Bonosconi, the Downtown Milford Business Association president.
Their next big event is the 21st annual Lamplight Stroll on Dec. 1, which includes a visit from Santa.
