Hall-O-Weekend downtown changed to Sunday due to weather

UPDATE: Due to the inclement weather forecast for Saturday, Hall-O-Weekend has been moved to Sunday, Oct. 28, starting at 11 am. 

The Downtown Milford Business Association's Hall-O-Weekend in downtown Milford was initially planned for Saturday.

Participating shops have gotten a Halloween-themed makeover from students at Platt Tech and will open their doors for trick-or-treaters. Visitors are invited to vote for their favorite painted window.

The new day, Sunday, will feature music with radio personality Brian Smith, a creepy-crawly mystery table, costume contests for all age groups (even pets), vendors, food trucks, healthy snacks sponsored by Stop and Shop of Milford, and more.

New this year, the Downtown Milford Business Association is teaming up with the city’s Green Halloween initiative — a campaign to promote sustainability within the city. The city will be giving away free reusable grocery bags in conjunction with the Milford Environmental Protection Initiative at the event, and Duck Duck Goose Children’s Boutique will feature a green-themed Halloween window display.

“Halloween and New England go hand-in-hand,” said Tracy Bonosconi, Downtown Milford Business Association president. “Downtown is such a wonderful resource to bring families together and make the memories that last a lifetime.”
