MEDINA – Parents in the Head Start program spent last Saturday decorating a float for tomorrow’s Parade of Lights in Medina.

It will be a spectacle of light and small-town pride on Saturday for the Parade of Lights. Organizations have been busy working on their floats for the 6 p.m. parade which starts at the Olde Pickle Factory on Park Avenue and heads into downtown.

(Police Chief Jose Avila, the honorary parade grand marshal, will flip the switch to light up Rotary Park at 5:30 and there will be fireworks at 5:45, just before the parade.)

Parents in the Head Start program met at the Head Start site on Ensign Street in Medina to work on the float.

Last year, Head Start won the “Littlest Elf Award” for the best float for involving youths and adults.

Here is how Head Start’s float looked last year during the parade.
