MOUNT VERNON, Iowa - Before the rains came Saturday, there was time to stroll up and down historic Mount Vernon’s First Street, take in the music and sample chocolate.
This year’s Chocolate Stroll began with a 5k run-walk.
“The purpose of it was just to bring people to Mount Vernon, we’ve got this chocolate shop and other chocolatiers in Mount Vernon. If you know anything about Mount Vernon, you know we love our festivals,” said Mickey Miller of Mount Vernon Confections.
Miller said this is the 6th year of the Chocolate Stroll.
