April 8-Easter Egg Hunt Themed Second Saturday Coming to Downtown Mount Vernon!

To wrap up this year’s Second Saturday season, Main Street Mount Vernon will be hosting a variation of the Easter Egg Hunt! Open to all ages. Bring the whole family to downtown Mount Vernon on Saturday, April 8th between the hours of 12:00-4:00 pm. Collect pieces of the puzzle for the chance to win prizes. Additionally, many of the businesses will also be featuring a variety of special discounts, children’s activities, gifts and more.


How to Play

To start, drop by Main Street Mount Vernon’s office (located at 102 South Main Street) where you will pick up a sheet. Your goal is to visit each of the businesses listed on your sheet to collect pieces of the Easter egg. Once you have obtained all the pieces, drop off your completed sheet at Main Street Mount Vernon before 4:00 pm on Saturday, April 8. You will be entered into a drawing to win prizes!
