MT. VERNON — The annual Fall Fest parade was all set to begin at 2 p.m. today with the theme of "Super Heroes Get Creative."
Prior to start time, floats were lined up along Broadway and last-minute preparations were being made. Organizers are hopeful the parade will draw a wide range of spectators, from young children to senior citizens.
The parade route is the same as last year. It begins on Main Street near the library at the corner of Seventh and Main streets, continues west down Main Street, then veers south on 10th Street. Next, the route goes south to Casey Avenue, where it turns back east to the Mt. Vernon Township High School parking lot.
