MEDINA – The Orleans County YMCA hosted a Scarecrow Festival today at the Armory building on Pearl Street. The event is sponsored by the Medina Lions Club.

Phyllis Misso of Albion and her granddaughter Cathleen Mastrodicasa of Lockport work together on a scarecrow. The Clothing Depot donated the clothes and sheets for the scarecrows.

Freckles the Clown entertained the crowd, and also did face painting.

Wyatt and parents Sara and Andrew Szatkowski came out for the festival.
