While many of the traditional activities of Harvest Days weekend are not possible, the Medford Area Chamber of Commerce along with business sponsors is gearing up for a weekend full of fun, treats and some spookiness.

On Saturday, October 24 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. there will be a “Rock Hunt.” Find a Harvest Days rock around town and bring the rock to the Chamber to win some prizes!

From 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. the Girl Scouts will be holding the “HERstory” Challenge, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the right for women to vote. A free event to walk and learn about the accomplishments of women through exploration and hands-on challenges. Find special code words and earn a prize. The information and prize tent will be by the campsites. Social distancing applies. For more information contact Kim at kim.a.wilson73@gmail. com.

Beginning at 6 p.m. there will be a drive-through spooky trail in the city park.

The directions to the spooky path are from Hwy. 64 go north on Centennial Parkway and stay close to the right side. (Organizers have heard that only on this Saturday the swamp people come out of the woods and take to the water.) Tune your radios to 107.1 FM and listen to spooky songs all the way through the spooky path. Turn right on Allman Street and you will see the entrance. Random cars will win great prizes from our member businesses.

At the end of the path you will be asked to wind your windows down and we will slide some treats down the


tube and into your cars. Remember this is only for vehicles. No walking will be allowed.

Those looking for fewer scares should come between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. Those looking for more scares should come between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.

At 6:30 p.m. there will be a drive-in at County Market parking lot. People can view all contest submissions on a big screen and vote for the best in each categories. Stay around for a family halloween movie from the comfort of your cars.

On Sunday, October 25, the city of Medford Trick or Treating will be held from 3 to 6 p.m.

Put your lights on if you want trick or treaters. All candy must be wrapped. All those participating are urged to use social distancing.

From 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. there will be an I SPY Scavenger Hunt with two ways to win. Stay in your car to receive either candy or a prize. All candy will be prewrapped and bagged. Stop at the Chamber office at 1:30 p.m. to pick up instructions.
