Medina will be hosting about 150 Civil War re-enactors from today until Sunday, with many seminars, workshops, two battles, a ball and a parade on the schedule. This banner hangs on the Bent’s Opera House front façade on Main Street. The building will be open for tours from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, following the parade on Main Street that begins at 10 a.m.

David and Gail Miller set gerbera daisies at the base of the Medina clock on Main Street this morning, trying to show off the clock in preparation of the Civil War encampment the next three days. Re-enactors will open their camp at Genesee Community College on Route 31A today from 4 to 8 p.m.
