MILFORD, Conn. —
A Connecticut school district has reversed its decision to cancel Halloween.
Parades will be held in Milford, Connecticut elementary schools, The Connecticut Post reported.
The schools' superintendent posted a letter to the district's website with the details of how the holiday will be celebrated.
A parade will now be held on Oct. 30, the letter to parents said.
Elizabeth Fester said the district came to a decision with members of the PTA to originally have an event outside the school day so more families could participate.
Fester said the school district did not ban Halloween, but rather changed how the school would celebrate.
"We were never attacking the integrity of the Milford school system," Lilley said.
But one of the organizers said that the after-school event would have included a parade, dance and trick-or-treating.
"We knew what the real deal was," Christopher Thomas said.
