General info

Each year, on the Sunday following Thanksgiving, people of all ages line the streets of downtown Mount Vernon for a traditional Christmas Parade and Walk.  The smell of roasted nuts and cinnamon fills the air, children enjoy train and carousel rides, families get photos with Santa, and mom and dad shop for those one-of-a-kind holiday gifts.  It's a heart warming time of celebration and community, brought together amidst the wonderful backdrop of beautiful, historic Downtown Mount Vernon.

Organized by the Mount Vernon News, the parade features a new theme each year, around which parade floats and entries focus.  From classic cars and equestrians, to marching bands and local civic groups, everyone loves to watch the parade.  And we can't forget the lighting of the greens on the Public Square and the official appearance of . . . Santa Claus!
