Mount Vernon Ohio Fireworks photo by Sam Miller

July 1st, 2011.  Mount Vernon, Ohio will be having their annual Independence Day Fireworks Celebration this evening.  Some of the best locations to view the Mount Vernon Fireworks are from the Memorial Park on Mount Vernon Avenue and also from the Mount Vernon High School parking lot.  Another outstanding viewing location is from the high school athletic / sports fields and also from South Division Street next to the football stadium and track.  Be sure to bring a blanket or lawn chair because the fireworks display traditionally lasts anywhere between 20 and 30 minutes.
