MT. VERNON, IL — Due to planning deadlines and the uncertainty of the status of the COVID pandemic this winter, the Mt. Vernon Parks Department regrets to announce the cancellation of the 2021 Daddy/Daughter Dance and the Mom/Son Event.
Each year hundreds of dads and daughters dress up for a magical night at Cedarhurst Center for the Arts and more than a hundred moms and sons have a glow bingo and pizza party activity at the Rolland Lewis Community Building. Both events are indoors with attendees in very close proximity of each other for a prolonged period of time.
Currently the IDPH and CDC limit attendees for indoor events to 25 people or less and that number has only been as high as 50 or less since mid-March 2020.
