Magical Night 2016 – Our Holiday Celebration



The holidays are quickly approaching, and the First Street Community Center with the Old School Shops in Mount Vernon are already decking the halls for the city’s Magical Night celebration Thursday, December 1st, 2016.

Magical Night festivities will begin at the First Street Community Center – at 5:00 pm Santa will “flip the switch” to light up the historic building.

This year marks the sixth anniversary of the First Street Community Center, owned by Rick and Trude Elliott of Mount Vernon. The building was originally the town’s high school, then its middle school. Now it is home to more than 12 local businesses and the First Street Community Center amenities which include a gymnasium, theater and meeting spaces, are available for the public to rent.
