Lincoln Highway Arts Festival 2016 sponsored by the Mount Vernon Area Arts Council

The LHAF 2016 is in the books now…

Thanks to all the artists, volunteers, musicians, dancers, demonstrators, patrons, restaurants, businesses, and sponsors for making this year’s event the best year ever.  As the chair of this year’s event I am overwhelmed by the help received and attendance in a time that our surrounding towns are faced with preparing for the flooding.

We had volunteers up at 5 am lining the streets and setting up for this event.  It takes a lot of time and energy from all to make this event successful each year.  Thanks also to all of the Mount Vernon High School students and Cornell students that volunteered their time and did anything I asked, you were troupers.  Some of the jobs aren’t pretty…

It is awesome to see a community with such talented artists that come out year after year.  It was also nice this year to have so many new artists added to the show.

The weather was perfect as ordered!

See you next year on September 16th, 2017.
