That's right — it's time for the city of Medford's annual candy cane hunt and marshmallow roast to get the kids in the mood for the holidays.

It's set from 3:30 to 5 p.m. today at Hawthorne Park, 501 E. Main St., and it's free.

Kids 1-12 can hunt for candy canes in the park's soccer field. Immediately after that, everyone can grab a marshmallow and roast it nearby.

Medford's downtown tree-lighting, which often takes place just after the hunt and roast, is set Dec. 5 this year.
