MEDINA – The Village Board on Monday evening approved shifting Beggars’ Night from Rotary Park in downtown Medina to the parking lot of the Olde Pickle Factory at 711 Park Avenue.

The change will allow for families to drive through and not leave their vehicle.

Beggars’ Night will be this Friday from 5 to 7 p.m. (or for as long as supplies last). There will be about 600 take-home boxes or bags of candy available. Merchants and members of the Medina Area Partnership will be handing out the candy.

The event has always been in the downtown with a long line of costumed children going from business to business for candy.

But Covid-19 protocols didn’t allow that, or a mass gathering at one location.

Trick-or-treating is allowed on Halloween from 5 to 7:30 p.m. in the village.
