This event began to call attention to Mount Vernon’s “three blocks to shop” in the historic Uptown business district, and will include stops at several art galleries and studios bookended by East End Art on the East side of First Street and First Brick Art Gallery, 224 First St. SW, on the West side. This year the event has expanded to include stops in Lisbon.
Additional details will be provided prior to this event.
