MEDINA – Medina Area Partnership will sponsor the annual Enchanted Faery Festival on June 25, featuring mystical creatures, a costume contest, crafts and give aways, a scavenger hunt and more.

Events will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in downtown Medina.

There will be a costume contest, with prizes awarded for king, queen, prince and princess, and all ages are welcome to participate. Crowning and a parade will be at 1 p.m.

A scavenger hunt invites visitors to win prizes by hunting with clues to find 12 faery doors that will be hidden in various downtown businesses.

A table will be set up in Rotary Park for participants to pick up and drop off the scavenger hunt sheet, take a photo with the themed photo board, make faery dust and have their faces painted. The event flyer with scavenger hunt form will be distributed to the elementary school.

Businesses may participate by offering a make-and-take craft, have story time or provide a small give away item, such as stickers, temporary tattoos, faery-related item that may relate to their business or a coloring sheet.

It is estimated 50 to 75 children will participate in the event. Non-downtown businesses may also participate by offering something in Rotary Park.

A list of businesses offering a craft or give away item can be picked up in Rotary Park.
