The Medina Historic district will be buzzing with activity on June 5th from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the Kids Day of Safety & Play. It will be a full day of free, family fun to start the summer season.

There will be games, activities, summer reading, and a huge safety fair. The majority of the activities will take place on and around the Medina Square.

“Kids Day of Safety & Play is one of our favorite events in the District,” shared Matt Wiederhold, executive director of Main Street Medina. “So many local organizations come together to provide free entertainment and educational experiences for the children of the community. We love the partnership with the Library to start their summer reading program, the fun book sale held by Project:LEARN, and all the games our sponsors provide. The safety fair is also a really fun but educational component where kids and families can learn about the fire and police departments, learn how to work a fire extinguisher, and get more familiar with the people who save lives every day.”

Coordinated and provided by Cleveland Clinic Medina Hospital, the Safety Fair and Big Trucks on Broadway Display will be on Broadway Street between E. Liberty and E. Washington Streets. Participating groups include: GASP (Guardians Advocating Child Safety and Protection), Medina City Fire Department, Medina Police Department, Medina County Sherriff, Medina Community Recreation Center, Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital, Medina County Health Department, Serpentini Chevrolet Humvee, Armstrong, First Energy, and Century Cycles. Additional participants may be added prior to the event.
