The days are getting longer, the sweet smell of grass – and pollen – is in the air, and the weekend with a glorious extra day of sleeping in is right around the corner.  Ah, Memorial Day.  It is a day of remembrance, and for many, it’s a weekend filled with friends, family, activities, and celebrations.  And if you are new to, or are considering, calling Mint Hill, NC your home, there is a Memorial Day weekend celebration that may become part of your tradition. 

The 37th annual Mint Hill Madness Memorial Day weekend festival returns on May 24 – 26, 2019 to celebrate the founding of the Town.  The festival is free to attend and has something for the entire family: spinning rides, hot funnel cakes, and Carolina music. 

The main stage showcases music from local bands each night and throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday.  The parade will begin at 9:00 AM on Saturday, May 25, and will include local businesses, beauty queens, police cars, fire trucks, marching bands, and more.  Rides, vendor shopping, face painting, and food options are also available and at an additional cost.  The main event is a firework display that starts at 10:00 PM on Saturday, May 25.
