Milford, Connecticut — Towns across Connecticut that were forced to postpone Halloween activities because of Hurricane Sandy have once again made the decision to push the holiday back because of an impending nor’easter.

The mayor of Milford asked residents to postpone Halloween activities again just one week after Hurricane Sandy moved through the area.

Halloween was originally moved to Wednesday, but since the state is once again preparing for strong winds, possible flooding, rain, sleet and/or snow, Milford Mayor Benjamin Blake is asking residents to celebrate on Friday.

The same holds true for people in Stratford. Halloween activities have been pushed back to Saturday.

Greenwich officials delayed Halloween until Sunday and Guilford will hold activities on Friday.
