Mount Vernon — Monday, June 20th was the official first day of Summer 2016. Press releases were popping in our inboxes, text messages and calls coming in, inviting us to cover this event or let us know about that event. There was entirely too much going on for us to cover everything over the first weekend of the Summer of 2016, what we did manage to cover we decided to share with you in a pictorial review.
Bringing the first weekend of the summer with a bang, fireworks returned to the City of Mount Vernon for the first time in over six decades on Thursday, June 23 and were held on the fields of Mount Vernon High School. It was a nice event and a great brief break from the more explosive fireworks in City Hall.
