A street dance on Smokey Row featuring local artist Cole Scoggins Band at 7:30 pm, Saturday, September 19, 2015 will end a busy Homecoming Week for Mount Vernon. The dance is being sponsored by the Franklin County Cultural Preservation Society.
“One reason we formed this group was to pass on the next generation the knowledge and love of dancing, “said Stephanie Hyman, one of the organizers. “We prefer our kids learn how to dance in a family setting.”
Admission to the event is $10 per person. Children that are accompanied by an adult will get in free of charge.
Big Mama’s Kitchen will be serving grilled burgers, Frito pies with homemade chili, and desserts. Tacos and burritos will be available from 3 Brothers Mexican Grill. Snowcones, drinks, and popcorn will also be available.
Those attending are encouraged to bring a lawn chair, visit with neighbors and enjoy an evening of music in downtown Mount Vernon.
Smokey Row is located on Houston Street on the south side of the square. It is the street just east of the fountain parking lot.
