It’s the most wonderful time of the year in Mount Vernon!
Each year, on the Sunday following Thanksgiving, people of all ages line the streets of downtown Mount Vernon for the Christmas Parade and Walk, from 1-5 p.m. Organized by the Mount Vernon News, the parade features a new theme each year, from the Victorian era to classic nursery rhymes, and more. The Christmas Walk features train and carousel rides for kids, family photos with Santa, and one-of-a-kind holiday gifts can be found in downtown businesses. The celebration wraps up with a Christmas Carol Sing at Public Square. Several activities benefit the Food For The Hungry drive.
