Magical Night – December 3, 2015


Mount Vernon’s First Street Community Center Offers Free Holiday Fun

2015’s Magical Night will be on Thursday, December 3, 2015 from 5:00 to 8:00 pm

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 Hometown Holiday Celebration, “25 Years of Magic.” Magical Night, the centerpiece of the event, takes place from 5:00 to 8:00 pm on Thursday, December 3.

Magical Night festivities will begin at the First Street Community Center with Santa’s arrival on the Mount Vernon Fire Department’s pumper truck.  At 5:00 pm Santa will “flip the switch” to light the historic building.

This year marks the fifth anniversary of the First Street Communty 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 ten local businesses and the First Street Community Center amenities which include a gymnasium, theater and meeting spaces, are available for the public to rent.
