Wow, it’s almost Mint Hill Madness time again. How do we know? The town’s maintenance crew is already at work making sure the parade route looks nice. The crew was out this morning creating a mini-dust storm along Matthews-Mint Hill Road, weed-eating and mowing. A street-cleaning truck and blower followed closely to get the dirt and grass clippings.

Mint Hill Madness is September 26-28 at the Park on Fairview (Hwy. 218) in Mint Hill. The Madness parade begins at 9:30 am on September 27. Check with Mint Hill Chamber of Commerce if you have any questions.
