Medina finds a better location for Beggars’ Night: school district campus

MEDINA – The Medina Area Partnership was able to work out the details this morning for having Beggar’s Night on the Medina school campus this Friday from 5 to 7 p.m.

Orleans Hub this morning had an article that the location would be at the Olde Pickle Factory. That gave the Medina Area Partnership an option after the Orleans County Health Department shared its concerns about having the event at Rotary Park.

Having the event at the school will reduce potential neighborhood impacts. MAP didn’t want a long line of vehicles backed up on a residential street.

Motorists on Friday should enter the school campus on Maple Ridge Road and will exit on Gwinn Street.

Scott Robinson, MAP president, said the Medina Police Department recommended the school, saying it would be much easier to manage the traffic.

Families participating in Beggars’ Night should stay in their vehicles. Medina merchants and MAP members will be handing out about 600 take-home boxes or bags of candy.

Medina also is allowing trick-or-treating on Halloween from 5 to 7:30 p.m. in the village.
