It’s leaf blowing and raking season in North Carolina! What to do with the leaves? I spoke with town hall today and they said to remember that all leaves you want picked up must be in bags. No more than 10 bags of leaves or any other yard debris will be picked up per week per household.

In this Thursday’s Mint Hill Times, watch for Adam Houston’s report on how the rain affected last weekend’s Mint Hill Madness. Attendance was down, Fairview Park got a little muddy, and the parade didn’t have all its floats. That didn’t stop everyone from having a good time, however. Here’s the band Volatile Baby who played Saturday at 12:30. Video by Tim Long, The Mint Hill Times.
In case you didn’t get over to the pet show at Madness Saturday, the folks at Mint Hill Animal Clinic were nice enough to share these photos with the Mint Hill Times.
