A new highlight of the 2011 Walk with Spirits of the Past was the addition of “Dine with The Spirits of the Past” on Saturday afternoon at Miss Molly’s Tea Room on West Washington Street in Medina. It will be there again this year. The popularity of the event for those who chose not do any of the scheduled Walks, made it vital that it be offered again this year, in 2012, as a part of the festivities.
The indoor location allows those who are looking for pleasant entertainment without having to “walk” to see the stories, to participate and enjoy food and drink at the same time. The cost of the tickets for the “history and refreshment” will be $22.50. The time will be 3 p.m. on Saturday afternoon September 8. Advance reservations are required. Tickets must be purchased at least 24 hours in advance at either Miss Molly’s or the Medina County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau Office on the Square.
This is Medina’s Seventeenth Annual “Walk with Spirits of the Past,” and is scheduled to entertain audiences once again with lively theatre performances about real, historical events. The outdoor “Walk” dates are Friday and Saturday, September 7 and 8, and Sunday, September 9, 2012. The stories about early Medina, and about well-known characters from local history, will be presented in locations around Medina Public Square, with groups starting the walk between 7 and 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and between 2:00 and 4 p.m. on Sunday. The annual event is cooperatively staged by The Medina Show Biz Company, The Medina County Historical Society, and The Medina County Arts Council.
The traditional “Walks” begin at the County Administration Building at 144 North Broadway in Medina, where every 10 to 15 minutes, guides will start out leading groups to different sites in the Square area where the dramatic performances will take place. Tickets for the Walks will be on sale at the beginning point of the “Walk” in the parking area of the Administration Building on the day of the event. Day of event prices are $6 for adults and $3 for all children 12 and under. Tickets may also be purchased in advance at lower prices at Ormandy’s at 10 Public Square for $5 for adults and $2 for all children 12 and under. Call 330-722-5502 or 330-725-6443 during business hours for further information.
