Two days and counting: Halloween is just around the corner. What do you need to know? Here's a quick rundown.
1. In Milford, it's celebrated on Halloween. Sounds obvious, but some towns celebrate it on different days. The hours are up to the parents, and are not set by police or any specific rule. But generally, look for the smaller kids earlier, by about 5 p.m. As for when to start, try to give working people a chance to get home and get ready.
2. The scariest thing about Halloween? Drivers and trick-or-treaters! Nightfall is often the hardest time to see people. So, slow down if you're driving, and for the trick-or-treaters, follow some basic safety steps. Make sure children hold something or wear something that is reflective.
4. Where are the best streets? We asked people on Facebook, and we got several responses. Here are some of the current ideas: the area around the high school, including the university drives, and the Briar Street neighborhood. [And Dr. Bon Tempo got recognition for giving out the best candy back in the day.]
