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.
