MEDINA – The Buffalo Touch, a polka band, performs on Saturday during the annual Accordion Fest, which moved from Hickory Ridge Country Club in Holley to the parking lot next to the Medina Senior Center and the Medina Railroad Museum.

Four groups performed during the festival, which was organized by the Genesee-Orleans Regional Arts Council. In addition to the Buffalo Touch, C’est Bon Cajon Band, Accordions ’Round the World and Roland Demos performed.

The event was part of a busy day in Medina, which also hosted Ale in Autumn, the dedication of a firefighters’ memorial, and the YMCA’s Mud Run.
