Local officials say they're waiting on guidance from the state Department of Public Health before they weigh in on trick-or-treating for residents this Halloween.
New Center for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines warn against trick-or-treating.
Some residents say it's yet another cruel thing to happen to kids who are looking forward to the holiday.
City officials in Milford are urging residents to be cautious and follow all CDC guidelines. But they say that doesn't rule out all spooky fun for this October.
Mayor Ben Blake isn't giving up the ghost on family fun.
"We're encouraging people to do drive-through Halloweens and a whole host of other things that are unique and that I think kids will enjoy," Blake said. "We've had to reinvent our daily routines. Halloween's just one of those things we'll have to reinvent in order to make it safe and healthy."
Milford will host a drive-through musical Halloween experience for residents called "Happy Haunts Hollow." The experience will run from Oct. 22 to 25 at Eisenhower Park.
