Mount Vernon Beach opens, adding pop-up pools for summer

MOUNT VERNON -

Mount Vernon Beach is helping its resident cool off this summer with pop-up pools.

The pools are the latest addition to the beach at Hutchinson Field, that officially opened last month.

The beach hosted its first major event on Father's Day, featuring the Sandz Caribbean Music Festival.

Some say the loud noise from the festival and trash left behind on the beach are things that shouldn't happen so close to a residential neighborhood.

Crews did return to the area the following day to make sure the beach was clean.

Officials from Mount Vernon and Pelham say they will work to find a way to ease any complaints in the future.
