Medina deemed a great place for Christmas

MEDINA — The city of Medina was named by Midwest Living magazine as one of the 25 best places to celebrate Christmas.

The latest issue of the magazine names Medina under the category of “small town festivities,” singling out the city’s annual Candlelight Walk as a special attraction.

This year’s festivities begin Nov. 16 with the lighting of 1,350 luminaries that will line the sidewalks surrounding Public Square for the Candlelight Walk.

The event, in its 28th year, is sponsored by Root Candles and Main Street Medina.

This year, the annual holiday display will feature new holiday lighting, with 30,000 bulbs installed on the historic buildings facing Public Square. City Council approved spending up to $43,500 for the project.

Medina resident Don Cartier led the research, planning and design of the project.
