Heritage Days in Mount Vernon cancelled

The 2020 Heritage Days Festival in Mount Vernon has been cancelled due to the coronavirus.

Heritage Days committee members are working with its fireworks vendor to reschedule a fireworks show at a time and day where crowds can gather safely, according to Heritage Days Committee Chair Cigi Ross.

“This was a long and difficult decision but working with the Mount Vernon City Council and Police Department, we really do feel that it is the best decision for the safety of everyone,” said Ross. “We are working with our fireworks vendor, and, are actively seeking a local partner and time frame to offer the community a fireworks show at a future date.”
