The McHenry Mansion celebrates the 4th of July every year with fun for the entire family. The mansion is decked out in patriotic red, white and blue bunting and drapes in honor of  this national holiday. The house is open to visitors before the parade starts. A food booth is set up early, selling morning coffee and doughnuts, followed by hot dogs, chips, soda and ice cream before the parade. The booth remains open during the parade, and student volunteers walk among the crowd selling food to the many visitors that line the streets. Supporting our booth is another way of helping the mansion meet it’s financial obligations while providing tours and activities that the community enjoys.
