Lots of treats, some tricks around Medina’s Square

MEDINA — Children will have a chance to trick or treat early this weekend during the Halloween Harvest Festival.

There also will be a costume contest at 5 p.m., and a pumpkin patch sponsored by Boyert’s Greenhouse on Public Square.

Costume contest winners will be announced at 7 p.m., and there will be a magic show at 8 p.m.

The festival, which continues Saturday, is sponsored by the Medina Community Recreation Center, Medina Hospital and Main Street Medina.

“We want to capture an old-fashioned Halloween festival that will bring families back to the historic square,” said Maureen Dowell, program specialist for the recreation center. “We are very excited to bring this event back to Medina each year.

“The community and businesses have been so generous in their support of the event, and we hope to reach a record number of attendees this year.”

On Saturday, balloon art, inflatables, live music, food and drink vendors and the pumpkin patch will be on the square all day.
