MOUNT VERNON, Iowa — It was all fun and games out at the Mount Vernon Heritage Days celebration on Saturday. Families spent their day enjoying the town’s classic small town festival.
Kids, and some brave adults, spent their day ziplining, doing tricks in the air, and going on other rides amid guzzling down funnel cakes.
“We got to go to the parade, I got a ton of candy and I got to do the zip line and I’m going to go bungee jumping,” said Elsa Appleton.
The main new attraction for 2014 — a Ferris wheel just east of the inflatable slides.
