The Medina and Albion business districts welcome children to dress in costume and receive candy and treats for the annual Beggar’s Night this Friday.

Both downtown business districts will likely see several hundred kids dressed as super heroes, goblins and other characters.

In Albion, children 13 and under are invited to meet at the fire hall on Platt Street at 6 p.m. and then tour downtown for treats. All children must be accompanied by an adult. The Albion Free Methodist Church will also have a “Trunk or Treat” party with candy, games and a large bounce house.

In Medina, the event runs from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Children should line up at Medicine Shoppe on East Center Street.

Medina Police Chief Chad Kenward urged motorists to show extra caution on Friday evening.

Kenward also advised the community that trick-or-treating hours in Medina will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 31. Residents handing out treats should keep a light on their front porch to signify they have candy to give out, Kenward said. Houses that don’t have lights on outside should be avoided by children for trick-or-treating on Halloween, the police chief said.
