MEDINA – Employees with the village of Medina strung lights on this giant Christmas tree next to the cannon in State Street Park on Tuesday.

The two Department of Public Works employees worked high in their bucket trucks to string Christmas lights in this tree at State Street Park.

Decorating the park for the holidays has been a tradition for Medina Lions for several decades, and this year is no exception.

The Christmas display which extends the full length of State Street Park is an annual tradition in Medina. The manger and Three Wise Men are just part of the extensive display, which Medina Lions put up on Saturday.

Lions’ members spent several hours putting up the decorations, which run almost the entire length of the park and include the Manger scene, Three Wise Men and Advent wreath.

Lion Dean Bellack said this a favorite project of the Lions and members support it wholeheartedly. More than two dozen members showed up to help put up the decorations, he said.

After the holidays, the Lions will remove the decorations and store them away for next year.
